Wehrmacht Book from Osnabruck (Winklehausen Kaserne)
I bought this book a few months back, and I'm curious to know a bit about where it come from. It appears to be a Wehrmacht discipline book.
The seller informed me that it come from Osnabruck Barracks (or as the Germans called it - Winklehausen Kaserne) Does anyone know anything of the history of the barracks... like who was based there before, and during the war.
Here's some pictures of the book.
