• Soldbuch to Obergefreiter Harald Brinkkötter. First issue from April 1942. Brinkkötter was serving with heavy Flak units, including the schwere Flak-Abteilung 663 in Breslau though mostly with reserve batteries until 1944. On 7th of June 1944, he was added to the personnel of the 4. Batterie of Gemichste Flak-Abteilung 11800. This Abteilung was located with the Flak-Regiment 95 in the Antwerpen area in Belgium. It was, however, soon rushed to the invasion front in France. It ended up fighting the Americans east and southeast of Paris, where Brinkkötter would eventually be captured late August 1944.   
  • After the war, Brinkkötter compiled a list of the places he went through during these days, from 17th of August 1944: these include Crossy-Beaubourg, Corbeil, anti-tank duties on the street to Lieusaint, Coubert, Brie-Comte-Robert, ending with his capture by the Americans on 30th of August 1944 in Coulommiers.  
  • The Soldbuch is complete and in very good condition; it comes with his matching zinc Erkennungsmarke, the list of his last days fighting near Paris, an address list of comrrades and a cut out photo from an American article showing what is presumably his captured 8,8 cm Flak position in France.
