Heer soldiers that received the Iron Cross in 1941

Post by TachoDeBasura » 04 Nov 2021 15:14

I always hear of MOH recipients that were common soldiers, but in the german counterpart, mostly officers and generals get the Iron Cross. Do we know any common soldiers (till oberst) that received the Iron Cross for military feats in 1941? What they did to get the award? Was there any other award for the common soldier for their feats?

Presumably you are referring to the RK d EK, rather than the EK1 and EK2 ?
