World War II German ace sniper "Joseph Seperberger" alias: Zep. Earned Medals: 1st / 2nd Class Iron Cross Medal, Infantry Assault Medal, Silver Badly Wounded Medal, 1st Class Gold Sniper Medal, Iron Cross Knight Medal.
After joining the German Army, the Second Battalion of the 144th Gebirgsjäger Regiment was assigned to the Third Mountain Division of the Eastern Battlefield as a sniper. Until the defeat of Germany, 257 individuals had been confirmed. .
Zep was only 18 years old when he reported to the Eastern Battlefield in December 1942. He was a machine gunner; Zep was unfortunately injured during the battle of Stavropol, but he also tried to capture one during his rehabilitation. Soviet sniper rifle. In the end, he finally killed 27 people by sniping and was selected to enter Seetaleralpe for sniper training.
After the training, the army sent a Kar98k carbine with a 6x optical sight to Zep; however, Zep claimed that he always used the Russian-made sniper rifle he had captured himself (most likely a Mosin-Nagan Rifle), and later switched to their own Kar98k carbine; as for the Gew 43 rifle Zep manufactured by Walter, it will also be used to perform tasks depending on the situation. In his memoir, there is also a record of the use of a Stg44 assault rifle equipped with a sight.
Zep rejoiced in the battle that he would use the skills learned during the training to add an umbrella skeleton with the umbrella cloth removed and leaves, and then put the umbrella stand in front of him, and it would become Camouflage camouflage stealth. Such a stealth is not only portable but can be stowed away when not in use, and can be used almost everywhere.
It is said that among the medals awarded by Zep, the high-ranking Ritterkreuz was awarded by Field Marshal Ferdinand Schörner. The award date was 1945, but this time there is no official record. Relevant documents are nowhere to be found. Because everything is chaotic in the final stages of the war, except for the survivors who can dictate in memory, the existence of written records should not be forced any more.
2005 "Sniper on the Eastern Front: The Memoirs of Sepp Allerberger, Knight's Cross", book by Abrecht Wacker (Albrecht Wacker) wrote and published after an interview with Zep. The book vaguely points to the situation in which the Soviets feeded on German corpses, and there is a picture of abuse.
On March 2, 2010, Joseph Sepp Ellerberg died of illness at the age of 85 in Wals-Siezenheim, Austria.
