Panzerfaust #53

In 1972, Don Greenwood was hired by Avalon Hill as editor for their magazine, the General. The magazine that had brought him to their attention was sold to Don Lowry, who took over as of issue #53.

This is a searchable scanned PDF of the original issue (without the game insert) from May/June 1972. (Note that there are a couple of pages where the text gets cut off a little, this was in the original printing.)

Panzerfaust was an amateur 'zine, but was growing up into the semi-pro leagues at this point, having graduated from mimeographs to actual offset printing.
