    Default Feldmarschall Rommel's Soldbuch - Up for Auction

    Reading through a German Military Magazine couldn't help but notice that a German auction house had Feldmarschall Erwin Rommell's Soldbuch up for auction on 14th June 2012 two days ago. Estimated value around 40,000 euro. Write up decribes it so - issued 18 October 1939 has the signature of Alfred Jodl in it and all of Rommels promotions from Generalmajor to Generelfeldmarschall 22.6.42. Rommel had it on him as he was forced to commit suicide. In the first picture is the doctor's statement in the Soldbuch - on 14.10.44 at 13.25pm dead on arrival at Res. Lazarett Ulm (Donau) Teillazarett: Diagnosis Heart failure due to in the West suffered service accident. A very nice piece of history but it comes with a high price tag. I've no idea what it went for ?

    Can anyone tell if this Soldbuch is legitimate from these images?

    I remember Rommel's Soldbuch (this one?) being sold at auction around 5 years ago. It fetched 50,000 Euro's.

    Strange quirk of history...if it were an allied generals documents they'd be on display in a museum!!!

    You'd be wanting some serious provenance before parting with that kind of cash.

    Hmmm. Why are there only these few images from the auction house and why would they cover up the photo on the inside of the cover?

    Alec, can you tell us where this was sold and do you have any more photos?
