OTHER INFO: The 1st Class of the Iron Cross was presented more scarcely, and logically held a correspondingly higher level of stature than the second class. In order to receive the Iron Cross 1st Class Army and Waffen SS men would have to perform three to four further acts of courage from the one that earned him the 2nd Class. The Luftwaffe and Kriegsmarine had the following criteria; the award was regularly awarded to U-boat Commanders upon sinking 50,000 tons and to Luftwaffe pilots when they achieved six or seven confirmed kills. Of course these were only guidelines, and a single act of great importance or a long steady career could earn the individual the Cross. Captain Stransky : “I will show you how a true Prussian officer fights.” Sergeant Steiner : “Then I will show you, where the Iron Crosses grow.”
