We were able to translate this document and it is a military court tribunal related report in regards to a soldier who appears to have deserted from the Italian Army. This 14 ½” x 9 ¼” document is in good condition with 99 percent of the text still able to be read, so be prepared for a translation project! The paper in which the text was printed on is thicker and more durable than regular paper, which helped in the preservation of this document. There is wear and tearing present on the edges and scattered areas of moisture damage. There are a few tear holes in the body of the document, but the text is still able to be read properly.

Accompanying the document is a lovely photograph copy of Benito Mussolini (far left) touring the Eastern Front with Adolf H (second from right) during World War II. Walking with them are the NSDAP leaders Hermann Göring (between Mussolini and H) and Wilhelm Keitel (right).

Comes more than ready for further research and display.
