Welcome to "Rupp's Skizzenbuch"
This is an on-line serial World War I soldier's journal and sketchbook, brought to you by The Blue Max Project. Over the next eleven months, follow along as Unteroffizier Gerhardt Rupp re-tells the story of "The Blue Max" from his perspective with his own words, sketches and photographs.

And so it begins.....

PROLOGUE
http://www.thebluemaxproject.org/prologue/
In this chapter an aging German immigrant passes away in St. Augustine, Florida.  Among her personal effects a soldier's journal and sketchbook from World War I is discovered.  The sketchbook is sent on to the Smithsonian's Special Collections Archivist for further study.

CHAPTER ONE - INTRODUCTIONS
http://www.thebluemaxproject.org/ch1-introductions/

Unteroffizier Rupp Gerhardt introduces himself and explains what brought this “old campaigner” to the town of Beauvin and what services he provides to his squadmates at Jasta 77.

CHAPTER TWO - THE GREAT WAR
http://www.thebluemaxproject.org/ch2-the-great-war/

Rupp shares a map he drew to show where Jasta 77 is located on the Western Front. He intercepts an American paper and gets some insight into how the other side thinks the war is going.

Next Chapter will be issued on Friday, January 19th.
