The order of Glory was established on the same day as the order of Victory. It became the last of the “land” orders created during the war: after it appeared only the sea orders of Ushakov and Nakhimov. The order had several features that no other national award had. First, this is the only combat distinction designed to award exclusively to soldiers and sergeants (in aviation, also second lieutenants). Secondly, they were awarded only in ascending order, starting with the Junior-III degree. This order was repeated only thirty years later in the statutes of the orders of Labor Glory and for service to the Motherland In the armed Forces of the USSR. Third, the order of Glory until 1974 was the only order of the USSR issued only for personal merit and never issued to military units, enterprises, or organizations. Fourth, the Statute of the order provided for the promotion of all three degrees of rank, which was an exception to the Soviet award system. Fifth, the colors of the ribbon of the order of Glory repeat the colors of the ribbon of the Russian Imperial order of St. George, which in Stalin’s time was at least unexpected. Sixth, the color and pattern of the ribbon were the same for all three degrees, which was typical only for the pre-revolutionary award system, but was never used in the award system of the USSR. The order was established on the initiative of Stalin I. The first proposal for its establishment was made on June 20, 1943, during the discussion of the draft order “Victory” at a meeting of the people’s Commissariat of defense. The technical Committee Of the main Quartermaster Department of the red Army, which was headed by Lieutenant General AGINSKY S. Was assigned to develop a draft of this order in August 1943. Nine artists worked on the order’s sketches. On October 2, 1943, out of 26 projects created by artists, 4 were presented to Stalin, who chose a drawing by N. (author of projects of the order of Kutuzov, the medal partisan of the Patriotic war and all medals for the defense of cities of the USSR). According to the plan, the order was to have 4 degrees: the same as the order of St. George and the badge of distinction of the military order – the famous George cross. It was originally planned to call it the order of Bagration. Stalin approved the colors of the ribbon, but ordered to reduce the number of degrees to three, similar to “military orders, and call the award the order of Glory, explaining that” victory without glory does not happen. On October 11, 1943, the revised drawings were submitted to the NCO and approved on October 23. The right of awarding the order of Glory III degree was given to the commanders of formations from the brigade commander and higher, the order of Glory II degree – from the commander of the army (flotilla), and I degree of order could only reward the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR. From February 26, 1947, the right to award any degree of the order passed exclusively to the Supreme Soviet of the USSR. The first reliably established representation for the order of Glory was held on 13 November 1943 when he was signed award list of presenting the order of the III degree sapper staff Sergeant Malyshev V. During the battle, Vasily Malyshev made his way to the enemy machine guns, preventing the advance of our troops, and destroyed it. Earned another order of Glory-II degree. Some sources give information that the first order of Glory of the III degree was awarded to sapper Sergeant Israelyan G. 52 for the 182nd rifle division dated November 17, 1943. Most likely, Malyshev was first presented to the order, but was awarded the order later, when Israelyan was already awarded. Since the orders were sent to different sections of the front in parties and distributed among the headquarters of formations entitled to award, the order issued earlier often had a larger number than the order issued later. Thus, the first batch of orders of the first degree was sent to the Leningrad front, and the first batch of orders of the third degree was sent to the 2nd Ukrainian front. Therefore, the order of Glory of the III degree No. 1 was later awarded to the 2nd Ukrainian front’s armored truck driver, senior Sergeant I. The first recipients of the order of Glory of the II degree were sappers of the 10th army of the Western (1st Belorussian) front, privates S. 634 for the troops of the 10th army of December 10, 1943. By the end of the war, Baranov and Vlasov received the first degree of the order. The first award of the order of Glory of the highest, I degree took place in July 1944. The first full recipients of the order of Glory were assistant platoon commander senior Sergeant Shevchenko K. Badge of the order No. 21 and sapper corporal Pitenin M. (Decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR of July 22, 1944). Pitenin died before the Decree was signed, before he received the order. Shevchenko reached the end of the war, also having the order of the red banner, the Patriotic war and the red Star, which was very rare for a Sergeant. The addition to his three orders of all three degrees of the order of Glory made him a phenomenon: not every Colonel or even General had six orders. A soldier of the 63rd Guards rifle division of the Leningrad front, commander of the infantry division of the guard, senior Sergeant Nikolai Zaletov (Decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR dated October 5, 1944) received the badge of the order of Glory of the first degree No. During the assault on the Karelian rampart, the company commander was killed, and, taking command, N. Zaletov, at the head of the company, was the first to break into the enemy stronghold. Zaletov owned the order of Glory of the II degree # 404 and III degree # 13789. The badge of the order of Glory of the first degree No. 2 was received by a soldier of the same 63rd Guards rifle division, Sergeant-major V. Ivanov (Decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR dated March 24, 1945). The first Decrees of the Soviet PVA on awarding orders of Glory of the III and II degrees were issued on December 21, 1943 (16 soldiers of the 1st separate Czechoslovak brigade) and may 15, 1946 sergeants S. Since in difficult front-line conditions there could be confusion in the documents for submission to the award, there are cases of repeated awarding of the same degree of the order (usually the third). For example, Vasily Timofeyevich Khristenko was awarded two orders of Glory of the III degree (February 22, 1944 and November 4, 1944), and later became a full knight, also receiving the order of Glory of the II degree (January 24, 1945) and the order of Glory of the I degree (may 15, 1946). In addition to four orders of Glory, during the war Khristenko was awarded the order of the red Star and the Patriotic war. After the war, he was awarded the orders of Lenin, the October Revolution, the red banner of Labor, and the Badge of Honor for his labor exploits. Scout of the 128th mountain rifle division Alimurat Gaibov became a full knight of the order of Glory, but he was awarded the second degree of the order twice. In addition to Gaibov, two other full Cavaliers had four orders of Glory due to the erroneous re-awarding of the second degree – gunner of the 1071st fighter-anti-tank artillery regiment Vasily Naldin and scout of the 35th guards rifle division of the guard petty officer Alexey Petrukovich. Hero of the Soviet Union Sergeant Glazkov V. Was awarded two orders of Glory of the 3rd degree. In the Soviet Army there was a unit, all the soldiers of which (except officers) were awarded the order of Glory. We are talking about the 1st battalion of the 215th red banner regiment of the 77th guards Chernihiv red banner order of Lenin and Suvorov rifle division of the 69th army of the 1st Belorussian front. During the liberation of Poland, during the breakthrough of the deep-echeloned German defense on the left Bank of the Vistula on January 14, 1945, the soldiers of this battalion quickly captured three lines of enemy trenches and held the position until the main forces approached. Soldier of the guard battalion senior Sergeant I. Perov he closed the embrasure of the enemy Pillbox with his chest, repeating the feat of Alexander Matrosov. All soldiers, sergeants and petty officers of the battalion became recipients of the order of Glory. Platoon commanders were awarded the order of Alexander Nevsky, and company commanders were awarded the order of the red banner. The battalion commander of the 23-year-old guards major Yemelyanov B. (posthumously) became Heroes of the Soviet Union. Among more than two and a half thousand full holders of the order of Glory, four bear the title of Hero of the Soviet Union. Gunner of the guard senior Sergeant Aleshin A. Pilot-stormtrooper second Lieutenant of aviation Drachenko I. Marine guard petty officer Dubinda P. Gunner senior Sergeant Kuznetsov N. (received the order of the first degree only in 1980). The title of Hero of the Soviet Union is also held by 80 knights of the order of Glory II degree and 647 knights of the order of Glory III degree. Among the full recipients of the order of Glory, there are four women. Sniper petty officer N. Petrova killed in action on may 1, 1945, born in 1893! Machine gunner of the 16th Lithuanian division, Sergeant Staniliene D. Nurse foreman Nozdracheva M. Air gunner-radio operator of the 99th separate Guards reconnaissance aviation regiment of the 15th air army of the guard, Sergeant Zhurkina N. Eight full recipients of the order of Glory in the postwar years were awarded the title Hero of Socialist Labor: Velichko M. There are cases of awarding four orders of Glory. Among the four order-bearers A. Gaibov (two orders of the II degree), V. In the ranks of the red Army fought a soldier Kuzin S. A knight of two George crosses, during the great Patriotic war, also awarded two orders of Glory. According to some sources, the order of Glory was also awarded to soldiers of the allied armies. So, on the website of the American collector Paul Schmitt, I found information that the order of Glory of the III degree was awarded to a soldier of the US Navy Cecil R. Probably, the American knight of Glory could be part of one of the sea convoys. This product is very old and has signs of aging.

Original German Iron Cross First Class – WW1, IN VERY NICE CONDITION, THREE PIECE CONSTRUCTION, MAGNETIC CORE – GOOD EXAMPLE, PERFECTLY WORKING PIN DEVICE, MAKER: “L/13″ (Paul Meybauer / Berlin), A VERY NICE PIECE. HISTORY OF THE AWARD. Iron Cross (German: Eisernes Kreuz) was a military decoration of the Kingdom of Prussia, and later of Germany, which was established by King Friedrich Wilhelm III of Prussia and first awarded on 10 March 1813 in Breslau. In addition to during the Napoleonic Wars, the Iron Cross was awarded during the Franco-German War, the First World War, and the Second World War. The Iron Cross was normally a military decoration only, though there were instances of it being awarded to civilians for performing military functions. Two examples, the civilian pilot Hanna Reitsch was awarded the Iron Cross First Class for her bravery as a test pilot during the Second World War and Melitta Schenk Gräfin von Stauffenberg (also a German female test pilot) was awarded the Iron Cross Second Class. The Iron Cross was also used as the symbol of the German Army from 1871 to 1915, when it was replaced by a simpler Greek cross. In 1956, the Iron Cross became the symbol of the Bundeswehr, the German armed forces. The traditional design is black and this design is used on armored vehicles and aircraft. A newer design in blue and silver is used as the emblem in other contexts. The Iron Cross is a black four-pointed cross with white trim, with the arms widening towards the ends, similar to a cross pattée. It was designed by the neoclassical architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel and reflects the cross borne by the Teutonic Knights in the 14th century. The ribbon for the 1813, 1870 and 1914 Iron Cross (2nd Class) was black with two thin white bands, the colours of Prussia. The noncombatant version of this award had the same medal, but the black and white colours on the ribbon were reversed. Initially the Iron Cross was worn with the blank side out. This did not change until 1838 when the sprig facing could be presented. Since the Iron Cross was issued over several different periods of German history, it was annotated with the year indicating the era in which it was issued. For example, an Iron Cross from the First World War bears the year “1914″, while the same decoration from the Second World War is annotated “1939″. The reverse of the 1870, 1914 and 1939 series of Iron Crosses have the year “1813″ appearing on the lower arm, symbolizing the year the award was created. The 1813 decoration also has the initials “FW” for King Frederick William III, while the next two have a “W” for the respective kaisers, Wilhelm I and Wilhelm II. The final version shows a swastika. It was also possible for a holder of the 1914 Iron Cross to be awarded a second or higher grade of the 1939 Iron Cross. In such cases, a “1939 Clasp” (Spange) would be worn on the original 1914 Iron Cross. A similar award was made in 1914 but was quite rare, since there were few in service who held the 1870 Iron Cross. For the First Class award the Spange appears as an eagle with the date “1939″ that was pinned above the Cross. Although two separate awards, in some cases the holders soldered them together. A cross was the symbol of the Teutonic Knights (a heraldic cross pattée), and the cross design (but not the specific decoration) has been the symbol of Germany’s armed forces (now the Bundeswehr) since 1871. The Iron Cross was founded on 10 March 1813 in Breslau and awarded to soldiers during the Wars of Liberation against Napoleon. It was first awarded to Karl August Ferdinand von Borcke on 21 April 1813. King Wilhelm I of Prussia authorized further awards on 19 July 1870, during the Franco-German War. The Iron Cross was reauthorized by Emperor Wilhelm II on 5 August 1914, at the start of the First World War. During these three periods, the Iron Cross was an award of the Kingdom of Prussia, although given Prussia’s pre-eminent place in the German Empire formed in 1871, it tended to be treated as a generic German decoration. The 1813, 1870, and 1914 Iron Crosses had three grades: Iron Cross 2nd Class German: Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse, Iron Cross 1st Class German: Eisernes Kreuz 1. Klasse, Grand Cross of the Iron Cross (German: Großkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes, often simply Großkreuz). Although the medals of each class were identical, the manner in which each was worn differed. Employing a pin or screw posts on the back of the medal, the Iron Cross First Class was worn on the left side of the recipient’s uniform. The Grand Cross and the Iron Cross Second Class were suspended from different ribbons. The Grand Cross was intended for senior generals of the German Army. An even higher decoration, the Star of the Grand Cross of the Iron Cross, was awarded only twice, to Field Marshal Gebhard von Blücher in 1813 and to Field Marshal Paul von Hindenburg in 1918. A third award was planned for the most successful German general during the Second World War, but was not made after the defeat of Germany in 1945. The Iron Cross 1st Class and the Iron Cross 2nd Class were awarded without regard to rank. One had to already possess the 2nd Class in order to receive the 1st Class (though in some cases both could be awarded simultaneously). The egalitarian nature of this award contrasted with those of most other German states (and indeed many other European monarchies), where military decorations were awarded based on the rank of the recipient. For example, Bavarian officers received various grades of that Kingdom’s Military Merit Order (Militär-Verdienstorden), while enlisted men received various grades of the Military Merit Cross (Militär-Verdienstkreuz). Prussia did have other orders and medals which were awarded on the basis of rank, and even though the Iron Cross was intended to be awarded without regard to rank, officers and NCOs were more likely to receive it than junior enlisted soldiers. In the First World War, approximately four million Iron Crosses of the lower grade (2nd Class) were issued, as well as around 145,000 of the higher grade (1st Class). Exact numbers of awards are not known, since the Prussian archives were destroyed during the Second World War. The multitude of awards reduced the status and reputation of the decoration. Among the holders of the 1914 Iron Cross 2nd Class and 1st Class was Adolf Hitler, who held the rank of Gefreiter. Hitler can be seen wearing the award on his left breast, as was standard, in many photographs. The straight-armed Balkenkreuz, the emblem of the Wehrmacht, first used in a narrower form on Luftstreitkräfte aircraft in mid-April 1918, and as shown here, as it appeared on German planes, tanks, and other vehicles during the Second World War. Adolf Hitler restored the Iron Cross in 1939 as a German decoration (rather than Prussian as in earlier versions), continuing the tradition of issuing it in various grades. Legally it is based on the enactment Reichsgesetzblatt I S. 1573 of 1 September 1939 Verordnung über die Erneuerung des Eisernen Kreuzes (Regulation for the Re-introduction of the Iron Cross). The Iron Cross of the Second World War was divided into three main series of decorations with an intermediate category, the Knight’s Cross, instituted between the lowest, the Iron Cross, and the highest, the Grand Cross. The Knight’s Cross replaced the Prussian Pour le Mérite or “Blue Max”. Hitler did not care for the Pour le Mérite, as it was a Prussian order that could be awarded only to officers. The ribbon of the medal (2nd class and Knight’s Cross) was different from the earlier Iron Crosses in that the color red was used in addition to the traditional black and white (black and white were the colours of Prussia, while black, white, and red were the colors of Germany). Hitler also created the War Merit Cross as a replacement for the non-combatant version of the Iron Cross. It also appeared on certain Nazi flags in the upper left corner. The edges were curved, like most original iron crosses. The standard 1939 Iron Cross was issued in the following two grades: Iron Cross 2nd Class Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse, Iron Cross 1st Class Eisernes Kreuz 1. Klasse abbreviated as EKI or E. The Iron Cross was awarded for bravery in battle as well as other military contributions in a battlefield environment. The Iron Cross 2nd Class came with a ribbon and was worn in one of two different methods: when in formal dress, the entire cross was worn mounted alone or as part of a medal bar, for everyday wear, only the ribbon was worn from the second hole in the tunic button. The Iron Cross First Class was a pin-on medal with no ribbon and was worn centered on a uniform breast pocket, either on dress uniforms or everyday outfit. It was a progressive award, with the second class having to be earned before the first class and so on for the higher degrees. It is estimated that some four and a half million Second Class Iron Crosses were awarded in the Second World War, and 300,000 of the First Class.
