This Order was established as a high-ranking award for officers. It was named after the Russian Field Marshal Mikhail Illarionovich Kutuzov (1745-1813), who fought against Napoleon. The name was used to inspire Russian patriotism during WWII. The first two classes were created in 1942, and a third class was added in 1943.

The I Class medal was conferred upon army and front commanders, deputies, and chiefs of staff, for a number of different criteria, which were:

1) An executed front or well-developed army level operation that resulted in the destruction of the enemy
2) A plan that forced the retreat of enemy units
3) For an organized operation of several units against enemy forces, leading to the exhaustion of the enemy's forces and materials.

Serial numbers range from roughly 1-500

The obverse Russian inscription translates to: "Mikhail Kutuzov".
