• Small Soldbuch grouping to Unteroffizier Karl Frondziak. First issue started in March 1942. His first active unit would be Pionier-Bataillon 106 of the 106. Infanterie-Division, with whom he was transported from the area of Saint-Omer (France) to the Eastern Front in February 1943. Frondziak was wounded during the battle of Kursk (Unternehmen Zitadelle), where his division operated on the right flank. After his release from hospital he stayed in reserve units for a long time, until he was added to the 1. Kompanie of Pionier-Bataillon 758 at the end of the war. This Bataillon was deployed in Holland and it must be there that Frondziak was eventually taken POW on 17th of April 1945. During his captivity in Holland, he was deployed in mine clearing. One of the places his unit is known to have cleared was the ammunition depot in Udden, near Apeldoorn.  
  • The Soldbuch is incomplete, missing pages 13-16 and 21-22, and with other pages and cover loose. The accompanying award document for his Kursk wound is also in pretty rough condition. Also included are four documents from his POW time, including his release document from October 1946.
