    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

    For decyphering the Soldbuch? - There are some useful links here Information on Soldbuchs , Wehrpass and other Documents !! at War relics forum

    For actual digging down into the weeds of the soldier himself the information is in the SB - date of birth, civilian trade, religion, hospital stays (and the reasons) etc. A good tip is to open a WORD doc - or even just a pencil and paper if you are old school - and go through the SB page by page and write down every entry in chronological order with the corresponding details from the stamps and dates. Here are two snapshot examples of mine, one for a Großdeutschland grenadier and the other a sailor and how elaborate you want to be is entirely up to you, mine are very basic compared to some I have seen but they do the trick. But from a time line it is easier to trace his movements with any particular units...

    But one thing about paperwork collecting is that you do tend to need a big book library to help with unit formations & histories, commanders, battles & relevant unit locations just to name a few things, and alot of the books nowadays are not cheap but unfortunately they are needed as the Internet doesn't contain all the information you need, especially for the more obscure/less 'famous' units.

    The piece of paperwork dated for 1st June 1944 and appointing him to SS-Unterführer-Antwärter is signed by Willy Reifflin - born 20th October 1893 in Flensburg. SS Nr 313969. He was the commander of III/SS-Pol.Inf.Rgt 3 in 1942/43 before becoming the Commander of the Waffen-Grenadier Schule der SS (Source: Führerliste).

    And the paper dated for 1st July 1944 appointing him to SS-Sturmmann looks to of been signed by Rudolf Leu - born 11th August 1922 in Duisburg. SS Nr 456102. In July 1943 he served in 4./SS-Pz.Gren.Rgt 4 before serving with 12./SS-Pz.Gren.Brig.49 in 1944. He moved on to the 6th SS Division in late 1944 (Source: Führerliste).

    Neither Reifflin or Leu won any high-end awards.
