Awarded for his support of the 548. Volksgrenadier-Division during its bitter defensive battles west of Powangen in early 1945. Engelhardt’s contributions to the combat helped to prevent the enemy breaking through to the Baltic Sea at Fischhausen (a distance of no more than 10 km to overcome) and thereby cut off the IX. Armee-Korps in Samland.
