- Soldbuch to Gefreiter Rudolf Wagenknecht. First issue from ca. late 1940. Wagenknecht served with the Stab of the I. Bataillon of Infanterie-Regiment 515, part of the 294. Infanterie-Division. After some time on the French channel coast, the 294.ID was transported to Yugoslavia in Spring 1941, fighting within Heeresgruppe Süd during the Barbarossa campaign. It fought on the Don front west of Stalingrad in 1942; Wagenknecht was shortly in hospital in Rossosch, August 1942. He was promoted up to Gefreiter that same summer but was ultimately killed in action on 17th of July 1943, in the Marinowka area on the Mius front, after a leg shot.
- The Soldbuch is a 100% complete and in very good condition. Portrait photos were not yet inserted at this stage of the war. It comes with the original Verwundetenzettel (wound tag) that was attached to him following his fatal wound, an earlier name tag, and his portrait photo as well as a small one of his wife.
