Service history is all clearly laid out there - Ost medal, war merit cross 2nd klasse with swords, Iron cross 2 klasse, drivers badge in bronze. He was in 3 Kompanie, Pioneer Rgt 35 (35 infanterie division). He clearly was a driver, but did get promoted to Unteroffizier in 1944 days before he dies, I’m guessing a posthumous promotion? Died in service with 3./Pioneer 35.

Wehrpaß usually have a more complete service history.

Not more I can add.
 
The printed inserts tell of the battles he was in -- (Border crossing, breakthrough of the Stalin Line, for example). For a non-fluent German speaker, it can be a bit painstaking to put together, but there is much there. I looked at it briefly,
it appears he was in the fighting on the approach to Moscow and other areas that will tell the conditions he
endured, etc. Hope this helps!
