The partisan threat had become so great that OKH detached several battalions of battle-weary, but elite infantry from Panzer Division Grossdeutschland to combat the problem. On a day in mid June, one of these battalions received a desperate SOS from a garrison under assault nearly 100km to the south. Loading as many men and weapons as possible onto the battalion’s four trucks, a relief column was hastily assembled. . .
Attacker: Partisan (Local Partisans)
