    The handwriting looks weird.
    It looks like someone tried to upgrade one of those empty Volkssturm Soldbucher.

    Certainly hope not! but I'm certainly not an expert. Got it from a well known member here.

    It is bogus.
    Like I said, the handwriting looks odd, but also all entries, which make no sense actually are done by the same person, this isn't possible.
    It looks artifically aged too.
    Your images are to small to say anything about the stamps used but from what I see I don't have high hopes for them either.

    The Volksturm wasn't part of the Army (Wehrmacht) it was an NSDAP (nazi party) organistation, they didn't use WH stamps.
    It was only when they went in to action that they, for Geneva convention reasons, became a part of the Wehrmacht.
