Period:
Second World War (1939-1945)
Rank:
Hauptmann (Captain)
Unit:
II./Gebirgsjäger-Regiment 91
Awarded on:
June 9th, 1944
Action:
A division daily order (19.06.1944) described Weber's Knight's Cross justification as follows...
"During a withdrawal movement along both sides of the Golowanewsk-Ljuschenwata road, on 15.03.1944, Hauptmann Weber broke through a strong Soviet blocking force following bitter combat in forested terrain. By this action he and four additional battalions of the division were able to successfully retreat to the south rather than be encircled and destroyed by hostile forces. With his outstanding personal bravery and great tactical skills, he and his valiant battalion have inflicted heavy losses on a superior enemy.
I congratulate Captain Weber on behalf of the whole division concerning this high honour."
