1 JOSEF BAUR 1915 ORIGINAL WORLD WAR I MANUSCRIPT DIARY HANDWRITTEN BY A HOMESICK GERMAN SOLDIER DETAILING HIS BATTALION'S ADVANCE THROUGH PRUSSIA ONTO RUSSIA
PRUSSIA ON TO RUSSIA 1915 Fair German Language 
On offer is an original unique WWI German soldier's diary handwritten by Josef Baur, D.R.G.M. No. 615788, as he identifies himself of the "Infantry Reg. 121; 8 Komp; II Batt 13; 26 Div." This 1915 pocket sized booklet provided for all German soldiers has writing on most of its pages; a German to French dictionary in the back of the booklet and a faded image of the German Kaiser on the front cover. For the most part Baur provides the reader with an idea of the troop movements that his unit follows as they move from Central Germany through Prussia. Their destination is the Eastern Front. Random notes and snippets: his father: Wilhelm Baur: mentions of the towns of Eigenzingen, Rothenburg, Karlsruhe, Freiburg, Lüttersbach, Bromberg, in the Prussian province of Posen; on the 7th page he has a title that ends in "Rußland" (Russia); marching commenced 12 September at 8 o'clock, marched until 10 o'clock; 13. September: 3 o'clock, something about 32 km; 14. September: 7:45 o'clock, 23 km until 12 o'clock; 15. September: 6 o'clock, 28 km; 16. September, 25 km; 17. September, 6:30 o'clock, to 12 o'clock; 18. September, Rest day; 19. September. Departed 7 o'clock, 28 km; 20. September, departed 8 o'clock, 17 km; 21. September, departed 6 o'clock, 24 km; 22. September, departed 6 o'clock, 33 km (Usumsdorff?); 23. September, 8 o'clock, 18 km. 12:23 o'clock, Johannisberg; on the 9th handwritten page he mentions Auschwitz, Breslau, Krackau, Bamburg. Leibnitz. Other mundane matters include a meal of 'Caffee with Emmenthaler' cheese and bread; on the 10th handwritten page: 28 September, mention of Budapest, and Potato soup, and Budapest again, and some kind of farmer's field (potato or cabbage field]; in one entry he titled 'Heimat' or 'Homeland" and then writes about being homesick. Overall Fair.
