Awarded for his support of Gruppe Ens during the breakthrough of the Metaxas line. Despite the strong enemy defensive fire and the difficult terrain he managed to bring his Sturmgeschütze into a suitable firing position for covering the attack of Gruppe Ens. This support was invaluable for the Gruppe’s success, enabling it to breakthrough the enemy line and help trigger the collapse of the enemy front.
