In late June through mid-July, the Germans in Yugoslavia launched Operation Freie Jagd. The object of this operation was to eliminate Partisan concentrations north and west of Sarajevo. The 7th SS Gebirgs Division led the effort and dispersed its regiments on individual hunt and destroy missions. On June 20th, elements of the SS-Volunteer-Gebirgsjäger-Regiment 13 occupied the ridges overlooking the outskirts of Novi Travnik. With a mortar section and heavy machine guns in place, the mountain troops moved into the village from both the east and west approaches. Unbeknownst to the Germans, a large company of Partisans of Tito’s National Liberation Army were hiding in Novi Travnik and waiting for night in order to move to the southeast to join with other Partisan forces.
