On the 28.11.1943, during an attack on Sabolotje, Hauptmann Möller would be wounded while leading his battalion. However he nonetheless remained to lead his men for the rest of the attack until the village could finally be taken. In the process the enemy, who were defending in battalion strength, were routed with heavy losses in men and weapons (the latter including lots of AT guns). For this deed, as well as his previous accomplishments as a commander, Möller would be decorated with the Knight’s Cross.
According to the Beurteilung awarded on August 23rd, 1944.
