Too many hoops. Is there a way to get at the paper without signing your life away?

Its much the same as his 'The War, One Great Adventure. The Writer and “Historian” Franz Kurowski' and what he says here:

Unfortunately Töppel seems to think Wittmann was known as 'Black Baron' by The Allies and no doubt his error will be referenced by those who wish to perpetuate that myth.

Did the Allies even know any so called Tank Aces ? Did the Russians ?

Well, If they weren't even that popular in Germany I doubt the Allies had any knowledge about them.
