    Rudolf von Ribbentrop
    Rudolf von Ribbentrop in 2015.

    In 2008, Rudolf published a biography of his father. "Joachim von Ribbentrop: Mein Vater: Erlebnisse und Erinnerungen" (Joachim von Ribbentrop: My Father. Experiences and Memories) It has currently been translated into French and English. It is a detailed biographical account written by a son, full of personal memories, in which the opposition of the Reich minister to enter the war against the USSR is highlighted. It provides data declassified by the archives of the former USSR on the negotiations of the Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact.

    I imagine that many of his contemporaries thought on more than one occasion that the son of a figure of the highest order of the Nazi regime would be predestined to spend a comfortable and safe war in some headquarters or in some rearguard destination, but of course it was not like that.

    Let us remember that he participated in the front line in the Dutch campaign, the battle of France, the Barbarossa operation, the third battle of Kharkov, the battle of Kursk and the battle of Prokhorovka, the Normandy campaign, the Falaise pocket and the battle of the Ardennes.

    He was wounded five times (he "collected" all three wound badges) and earned his country's highest military decoration during WWII.

    Following the publication of Kurowski's book "Panzer Aces" in 2004, von Ribbentrop sent the editor a letter in correct English that read: "It's nice to be recognized, but I was just another soldier doing my duty, and let's not forget to all the other men who did their duty without receiving any recognition".

    Obituary of Rudolf von Ribbentrop.

    Proud to the last moment of his Finnish decoration earned as a young man, a few years after running around the streets of Londros on his way to school

    This is the story we have found under the top hat that our friend Ullergaard has shared

    It is true that the family is not chosen and a father is always a father, for any child.

    See you soon.

    P.S. Ullergaard, we wait to see how the photo looks next to Rudi's top hat

    Thanks for letting me use your thread

    By the way, we cannot forget to say that chatting about the photo above, in September 2018, in the forum thread "show your signed photos" our friend KMMorris in post # 891 uploaded this other photo....

    Rudolf von Ribbentrop

    ....And commented. "The second photo you have of him in his Panzer IV probably a H or J model is taken near Kharkov during the Third Battle of Kharkov.
    Here is the only other photo of him there, middle with the fur coat".

    Thanks again from here, Morris.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
