German military documents

The documents presented here include German military service records until 1918 (Militärpässe and Überweisungsnationale) and 1945 (Wehrpässe), paybooks (Soldbücher), awards and other papers.

For the time being, the sub-sections mainly comprise draft listings of many of the documents in my collection as it currently stands. Most of the entries are only summaries and need to be revised to include proper place names, higher-level formations and additional information to place them in their relevant historical context. The purpose of these entries is to provide a reference point for research into the various personal biographies, units and campaigns concerned.

Please contact me at if you have any information or questions concerning the individuals, units and campaigns related to any of these documents. I am most interested in exchanging information and finding out more about the subject matter of these documents, no matter how trivial it might seem. In the long term, this will help to develop a better picture of each item in its historical context.


The information presented here is intended for historical and research purposes only. The author has no intention to glorify war, nor does he promote or support any extreme political, neo-nazi or revisionist beliefs or ideology whatsoever. If this information helps to promote awareness of the human side of war, then so much the better.
