The “Author”










My name is Holger Erdmann. I was born in Giessen, Germany in 1975. In 1996, I finished school education with higher education entrance qualification. After that, I did one’s military service at the Pz. Gren. Btl. 52 (armoured infantry battalion 52) in Rotenburg an der Fulda.

This MAN 10t mil. gl. belonged to  6/Pz.Gren.Btl. 52 and was later lend out to 1/52.










In 1997, I started studies in geography at Justus Liebig University in Giessen which I finished in 2010 with the grade of a diploma geographer.










Since my earliest youth I am interested in military vehicles. Still, I am building military models on a scale of 1:35. Some years ago, some old photos from WW II came into my hands. Since then, the collecting passion has seized me...
