Ritterkreuzträger in Poland, 1939

Post by RFPB » 15 Jan 2010 17:01

I have only seen the RK being awarded first on 30. September, 1939. Who was this? How many were there who were awarded the RK for the Polish campaign of 1939?

Thank you,
Mansal

I had to delete U-Boot-commander Prien from the list. He was not involved in the actions against Poland in autumn 1939 !!
