Soldbuch to Otto Lipp
Born in Stuttgart, Germany in 1927.
He enlisted in Böblingen in November 1944 with a Panzer Ersatz Abteilung 7
Panzerjäger-Ersatz- und Ausbildungs-Abteilung 5
The unit was disbanded in late 1944, and the soldiers used for the 9th Panzer Division.
What we can make out from the Soldbuch is the following:
He was issued combat equipment on the 23.12.1944, including a camouflage cover and winter kit! In February of 1945, he was issued a Rifle (no more vehicles?)
In early 1945, the division engaged the Allied in fighting around the Eifel mountain range. It also participated in fighting around the Erft River in February, where its armored force was reduced to 29 tanks and 16 assault guns. Late in the month, it launched an attack on the Allied Remagen Bridgehead over the Rhine River, which failed to reach the Remagen Bridge.
It is unknown what happened to Ott, but he was likely captured in the last stage of the war.
The Soldbuch is a clean example.
