• Document and photo grouping to Kriegsmarine veteran Alfred Guderian, a crew member of the notorius Panzerschiff Deutschland. He could very well have been family of the well known Panzer general - they were from the same area in Eastern Prussia. He entered the Kriegsmarine late 1936, was with the Panzerschiff Deutschland in Spain (earning him the Spanienkreuz), and was still on the Deutschland when the war broke out in 1939, until at least 1942...
