On the 26.11.1941 Lascar and his Romanian mountain troops ejected the heavily dug-in Soviet forces from their positions at Alau. After this he decided on his own initiative to take the high ground east of Chapel Hill, and was successful in this endeavour. A day later, following a tough bunker battle, his brigade captured another important hill for the continuation of operations in the Crimea.
Later, on the 17.12.1941, General Lascar personally led his men and stormed the village of Korlowka and the important heights near Tschorbuny. By this action he established contact with a German attacking group and created the precondition for the continued successful attacks.
For his brave leadership in these battles he would be decorated with the Knight’s Cross.
