    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

    GeneralMajor Magnus took sick and GeneralMajor Lattman took over his duties and Magnus was only commander on paper.
    Generalmajor Lattman went on to command the Volkspolitzei in the DDR and overall strategest in Armour studies in DDR also.

    How is it the paper was so well preserved? Was it inside some box? Would be great to see photos of how it was discovered.

    Sorry
    I was digging after work ... at night, and I have not had the opportunity to photograph my excavations

    These documents were in the corner of the bunker, just lay on the floor
