Default Johann Voss/Black Edelweiss/6th SS gebirgs

Hi, has anyone read Black Edelweiss by Johann Voss? He was with the 6th SS Gebirgs up in Karelia.
I hear that he was at a book signing at the MAX last year, but I didnt make it due to a personal situation and now I bitterly regret it.
Does anyone know how I might be able to contact him?
Thanks

Hi There!
I have read the book more than once and I find it to be a really good book, I like how he writes about how the soliders had it.
If you havent read it i think you should try to get a copy of it

Unfortenly I dont got his real name as he is using a fake name when he wrote the book, allthough, a guy on a swedish forum did some detective work and found out his real name and have been in contact with him, unfortenly he wouldent give me his name.

I met Johan Voss at the Max show last year in Monroeville, Pa. He was signing copies of his book. Suprisingly other than white hair he looked the same as the pictures in the book, quite fit for his age.

Black Edelweiss is by far one of my favorite books written by a Waffen SS vet. You may wish to send an email to Aberjona Press regarding sending a message to Mr. Voss. I believe the editor at Aberjona is Mr. Keith Bonn.
