On 11 November 1942, he repaired several breaks in the telephone line to his unit's command post under artillery fire - and thus made a decisive contribution to repulsing an enemy attack.

Much earlier, in August 1942 during the defensive phase of the Battle of Stalingrad, he earned another Red Star (#82882) by constructing pontoon bridges over the Don River which allowed to hold the bridgehead at Serafimovich.
