- Oct 26, 2004I have been researching the Dukla Pass fighting of Sept-Nov 1944.
I've posted a bunch of photos and a brief English-language summary
Recently a webmaster in Russia has begun to publish Soviet battle
maps for this region as well as western Slovakia. I am collaborating
with him to translate to English all six maps, which are written in
Russian. I have almost completed my annotation of these maps. These
maps for the most part show the Soviet offensive Southward from
Poland and Westward from Ukraine.
You can find pointers to the original battle maps here:
This is an important breakthrough. While this material was published
some time ago in Russia, it has only recently become generally
available to the Western public. Since most of these battles did not
involve US/Great Britain forces, there was only cursory summary
information provided in English-language history texts.
If you have further information (or know of others who may) and would
like to contribute to the English-language pages on Dukla fighting,
please drop me a note.
