German Soldbuch 2nd World War, belonging to Kanonier Leutnant (Lieutenant Gunner) Willi Karl Kasper. Soldbuch discharged on October 14, 1940. Originally belonged to Vermessungs Abteilung 607 Verm. Batterie (Mot) , Surveying and Mapping unit, attached to the 19 Armee . These units had assigned several anti-tank pieces and infantry platoons, because they acted very near the front line and in the rear where they could be attacked by partisan forces.
With his unit participated in the Campaign of France and in June 1941, fought in Operation Barbarossa, the invasion of the Soviet Union, attached to Army Group North, in the conquest of the Baltic States and northern Russia to participate in the siege of Leningrad, where he remained until February 1944, with the Soviet offensive that liberated the city and pushed back the German Army gradually until Kurland´s Peninsula. Between April and August of 1943, this unit was assigned to anti-partisan fighting in the vicinity of the town of Krasnoye, south of Leningrad.
In September 1944, this officer is transferred to Vermessungs und Karten Abteilung (Mot.) 631 K. Batterie , part of the rebuilt 6 Armee, (completely destroyed in the Battle of Stalingrad and re-formed in March of 1943), within the Army Group South, which by then was in Romania. The new Soviet offensive, forced the withdrawal into Hungary, to the city of Budapest, where several of its units were involved in the defense of the city.

The survivors surrendered in the Alps to the U.S. Army in March of 1945.
