    Default Generalmajor Soldbuch

    This Soldbuch belonged to eventual Generalmajor Georg Seegers who was promoted to that rank in March 1945 and judging by the inside front cover he wasted no time in replacing the original photo with him wearing his new collar tabs.
    The Soldbuch is a second issue as it was opened in February 1942 at a time when Seegers was serving within OKH in Heeres-Personal-Amt P2. In between combat assignments he seemed to return to OKH P2.

    Starting the war in OKH he then went to III/IR 432 (131 Infanterie-Division) in 1941 as an Oberstleutnant. Staying with IR 432 until October 1941 he was then reassigned back to OKH P2 as a Gruppe-Leiter in OKH HPA. In 1942 he became an Abteilung-Chef with the HPA and was promoted to Oberst in April of that year.
    He remained at OKH until the beginning of 1944 when he received a combat posting as Regimental Commander of IR 431 (131 ID) which was fighting on the Eastern Front. During the fighting in the last months of the year Seegers was recommended for, and won, the DKiG with him being awarded the honour on 15th December 1944. At this time 131 ID was caught up in the heavy fighting in East Prussia as a part of 4 Armee.
    In February of 1945 due to the wounding of the Divisions commanding officer, Seegers was handed the temporary command of Fallschirm-Panzergrenadier Division 2 'Hermann Göring' - also of 4 Armee - which he held for just a month or two. The division was evacuated on March 25th to Denmark and it is very likely that Seegers returned with it as he was then assigned to OKH Reserve for the remainder of the year instead of ending up in Russian captivity. This unit assignment is the one shown 'blacked out' on Page 17 of the Soldbuch.

    Within the Soldbuch are two signatures of Knights Cross & Oakleaf winners, these being Mortimer von Kessel (seen on Pages 2,3 & 22 while the DKiG entry is signed by Werner Schulze who also won the DKiG in addition to the RK & EL. Also seen on Page 15 is the signature of Friedrich Weber who also won the RK & DKiG.

    Along with the Soldbuch was Seegers WW-1 Soldbuch & Militarpaß (he served with IR 77). Post war Seegers spent some time as a President of a post-war veterens organisation.

    After a bit of trading I have managed to acquire the extra items for Seegers. The extra's are his Truppenausweis and a photo album. The album is a post-war put-together one but it was undoubtedly done by Seegers as he has named a lot of the people in the photos and the photos also include some taken at an official veterens get-together in the 1950's.

    Here is the Truppenausweis and a sample of some of the photos.
