Good pair of items related to Luftwaffe "Fallschirmjager" ("paratrooper") Reinhold Buhr, includes: photo album, 40pp. oblong 8vo., containing 141 original b/w photos, mostly 3 ½" x 2 ½" snapshots but also including several 3" x 5" portraits of Buhr and his comrades, at least one prominently displaying his Fallschirmjager badge. Additional images show Buhr's unit in training, wearing Fallschirmjager helmets and jumps smocks, sightseeing views of Paris, Vienna, Stuttgart and Douaumont, and numerous non-combat views taken on the Eastern Front. The album is accompanied by Buhr's pocket diary for the year 1945, 124pp. 12mo., featuring terse entries describing the last days of the war, including his capture by American forces on April 17 and, on April 25, "When does it all come to an end?" The diary was originally mounted in the photo album, but has since been removed, otherwise both in very good condition overall. Worthy of further research.
