    The doc is signed by Freiherr von Gablenz Commander of 384 ID , The Divison was involved in Fall Blau in Summer 1942 in Southern Russia until it was trapped in the Stalingrad kessel , Von Gablenz was flown out of the Kessel in early december 1942 with his HQ staff, the rest of the Divison remained in the Kessel and perished with the rest of the 6th Armee , nice piece of history !!

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Award documents are great to add to a medal. They really complete the look. I like this one and how the EK ribbon is across the top corner. Great grouping. Thanks for showing.
