Though I won't vouch for it I don't think that there is a German edition. I made a search in Karlsruher Virtueller Katalog (a collection of OPACs) and while you are able to find both the Finnish and the Swedish edition I didn't find a German version in any German, Austrian or Swiss library.

OK then, but I'm almost sure that it has been translated to some other language too (actually Finnish version is a translation and the one in Swedish is the original.) Perhaps it is in French then?

General Öhquist

Post by VJK » 03 Nov 2012 11:15

Hi,

After 7 years, I have a question - Mikko very kindly gave Öhquists's war-time decorations, but does anyone have a list of his other decorations, please?

Very best regards,

VJK

Apart from the listed awards, one can safely assume based on his service record that he was also awarded with the Commemorative Medal of the Continuation War and the Cross of Karelia (fi: Karjalan risti).
