Awarded on July 9, 1941 as Commander of the I. / Schützen-Regiment 104/21 Panzer-Division by:
“The Hauptmann der Reserve Bach not only maintained his strong point (which constituted a key position) with iron determination for three days against strong English attacks, but also successfully carried out the counterattacks that were launched under the brave personal leadership from him. His decision to modify the divisional order to hold the Halfaya Pass under all circumstances, as well as his skillful combat leadership of German and Italian troops alike, were crucial factors in the outcome of the great tank battle.
