This is an apolitical forum for discussions on the Axis nations and related topics hosted by Marcus Wendel's Axis History Factbook in cooperation with Christian Ankerstjerne’s Panzerworld and Christoph Awender's WW2 day by day.
Founded in 1999.
It's quite possible, or they may have copied it right out of the book "Die Generale und Admirale der NVA". There are e-bay sellers who have packaged up all of the Wikipedia articles I've written on Volksmarine Admirals into a "book" they are selling on e-bay. Burns my butt, but there is nothing I can do about it.
