The wounded commander of 2nd batallion/Infanterie-Regiment 46, Hauptmann Burseg reports to his divisional commander General Kurt von Briesen (to the left with map, KIA 1941 in Russia) before being taken to the rear. Near Petem/Belgium, May 26, 1940.
What is the christian name of Hauptmann Burseg? I couldn't found his name everywhere, or maybe this is typo?

presumably it's Herbert Burseg.
This GoogleBooks snippet http://tinyurl.com/mmwng4d
mentions a one-legged former Wehrmacht Major originating from Wrist (Schleswig-Holstein) who trained junior Volkssturm leaders in Itzehoe in 1944/45.
This is supported by the following site http://home.arcor.de/loenne1/Absturz/Steenbock.htm
that speaks of a Major (ret.) Herbert Burseg living in Wrist in 1944 as a farmer.
Since 'Burseg' is a very rare family name in Germany chances are good this is the man you're looking for.
