• Soldbuch to Obergefreiter Bernhard Holbeck. This carpenter from Essen received no less than seven "Sonderurlaub - Bombenschaden" leaves because his home in the industrial city of Essen was bombed by the Allies. He spent most of his military career in Luftnachrichten units in Brussels (Belgium), G├╝strow, Dresden and also in the East, earning him the Ostmedaille. By late 1944, however, he was to fill the ranks of the 21. Panzer-Division that had retreated from Normandy with very heavy losses. After a short training in a Panzer recruit company, he was assigned to Panzergrenadier-Regiment 125 of the 21.PD. With this unit, he fought in the "Nordwind" offensive in the French-German border area, after which he was moved to the Oder front. There, the division surrendered to the Russians.  
  • The Soldbuch has some loose pages and loose back cover but is still a 100% complete.
