    The Carpatho-Dukla Operation - Pavel Nater explains how on August 29, 1944, the Slovak national army and partisan forces in the republic of Slovakia (the eastern half of former Czechoslovakia and a vassal state of Nazi Germany since March 1939) rose in rebellion in response to a German invasion of their territory. The fighting lasted for two months and ended in defeat of the insurgents, their last stronghold — the town of Banska Bystrica — falling on October 27.

    Superb description of the battle for Dukla Pass here.

    I re-read these links over breakfast this morning (Yes I know but when you have kids you read History when you can!!) and what strikes me is the amount of casualties, more than the Ardennes in the same time frame yet its almost unknown in the west.
