The medal "For Courage" from the moment of its appearance has become particularly respected and valued among the front-line soldiers, since it was awarded exclusively for personal bravery shown in battle.
This is the main difference between the medal "For Courage" and some other medals and orders, which were often awarded "for participation". For the most part, the medal "For Courage" was awarded to private and non-commissioned officers, but it was also awarded to officers (mostly junior managers).
