The Slovakian Army’s uprising against their German foe had failed in the center, and that in the eastern part of Slovakia was in danger of collapsing as well. The last substantial reserve was the 2nd Czechoslovakian Airborne Brigade, which was comprised of Soviet-trained former POWs and had been flown n weeks earlier to organize the local populace against possible German occupation. Although these paratroops had been re-trained in the ways of the Red Army, many of their officers felt that the best way to fight the Germans was via guerilla warfare. As some headed for the hills, others maintained their military bearing as they attempted to defend the headquarters of the uprising, located in the town of Banska Bystricka.
