At one point in the fighting he led his company in a flanking maneuver and captured the village of Wirballen. He then began a rampage behind Russian lines without any infantry support, eventually establishing contact with a friendly infantry division. By the end he and his company had destroyed 16 tanks, 16 anti-tank guns, 6 artillery pieces and 13 machine guns, in addition to killing approximately 300 Soviet soldiers.
