Rare photo album compiled by a German "gebirgsjager" or mountain soldier, 10" x 7" overall, with approx. 175 original photographs documenting the man's training in Germany and posting in Norway. Most of the images vary in size, and are set to album pages with clear corners. The first fifty or so images show the soldier with his family and friends, sometime in uniform. The balance of the album places him in training and (mostly) in Norway at various locations during all of the seasons of the year. Conditions are harsh, as evidenced by his often crude, snow-covered dugout living conditions, graves of comrades evident, etc. He is often shown on skis and with reindeer, in another instance standing beside a Luftwaffe bomber. About one-third of the photos were taken at Kirkenes, a small outpost in Norway on the Russian border. Here again he is shown doing guard duty, often on skis, in the field, at a destroyed Russian outpost, etc. Overall very good, and a rare subject.
