Knights cross with Oak leaves and crossed swords.
The Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross or simply the Knight's Cross was a grade of the 1939 version of the Iron Cross. The Knight's Cross was the highest award to recognise extreme battlefield bravery or outstanding military leadership during World War II.
The Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross was worn at the neck and was slightly larger but similar in appearance to the 1813 Iron Cross. The order could be presented to German soldiers of all ranks and to the allies of the Third Reich. Its first presentation was made on 30 September 1939.
As the war progressed, some of the recipients distinguished themselves further, and a higher grade, the Oak Leaves to the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross was instituted in 1940.
In 1941 another higher grade of the Knight's Cross with Oak Leaves were instituted. These were the Knight's Cross with Oak Leaves and Swords
