How long does it take for new information to be corrected? Exactly one week!
From Timm Haasler, one of the authors of Combat History of Sturmpanzer-Abteilung 217:
“Last week Lee informed me that the Sturmpanzer book had arrived at his warehouse and that he was able to acquire a new picture of a Sturmpanzer IV of Stu.Pz.Abt. 217. I bought the picture on page 94 on eBay a few years ago. It had no caption on the back, but the seller contributed information from the photo album from which the picture was taken. Based on this information and the little information available about the fighting in March 1945, it was an educated guess that this tank was destroyed in the Hürtgen Forest area. After Lee had played with the exposure of the new photo, the writing on the sign could be deciphered: “Rheinbach 20 km”. So we have a completely different story to this picture and can also understand why the tank was without tracks and running gear.
Readers should go to page 185 of the book and read the story of the two prisoners of the Staff Company of Stu.Pz.Abt. 217 on March 6, 1945. Lessenich is located 20 km west of Rheinbach.”
