“Lieutenant PINZUL Petr Fedorovich is a brave and decisive commander. When the enemy tried to break through the defence line of the 50th army near the village Zhukovka, Orel region, comrade PINZUL lead a group a group of sappers and mined a bridge over the river Belogolovaya, while under enemy fire. When an enemy armour group approached the bridge, the bridge was blown up with the first tank, that rolled over it.

During the retreat of the 50 army, comrade PINZUL and his platoon provided cover on one of the roads. In this sector, he destroyed the bridges, rail tracks, rail way structures and other objects. This was done on the rail stretch Zhukovka (cement factory) – Buyanovichi (Gutovo forestry) of the Orel region. During the offensive operation of the 12 Guards rifle division at the village Popkovo, comrade PINZUL accompanied the reconnaissance-demolition platoon. Under the enemy fire, he conducted engineering reconnaissance of the approach routs to the village Popkovo and cleared the best path for our tank column to advance into the village. Our troops entered the settlement, but were heavily fired upon from the school and the church buildings. Lt. PINZUL’s sapper unit went and all lines are to be filled in approached the church several times and demolished one by one several enemy embrasures. As the result, the school and the church building were blocked and the enemy cleared.
