On the 02.08.1941 Weber's Division (61. Infanterie) was advancing from the east along the Järva—Jeani road when a scattered Soviet regiment was reported to be advancing on them from the south. Weber immediately took a Bataillon and swiftly plunged into the middle of the Soviet troops with them. In the confusing situation, Weber's leadership ensured the German's were able to master the odds and the Soviets were destroyed or scattered. The flanks and rear of the division were thus cleared of the foe, and Weber was awarded the Knight's Cross.
