He commanded the Gruppe of Sturzkampfgeschwaders 1 (StG 1-1st Dive Bomber Wing), which participated in the Battle of France.

He participated in over 500 combat missions; some of which included the attack on the HMS Illustrious, a Royal Navy aircraft carrier; invading the Soviet Union; and operations against Malta. In July 1942, he was awarded the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross. Identities and accomplishments of signers neatly stamped in German on verso. Lightly toned. Corners and edges gently worn.
