The Battle for Wounded on Neretva River

The Battle for Wonded on Neretva river was a salvation for more than 4000 wounded. It was the battle raged in February and March of 43. by partisans who were surrounded by German troops combined with Italian troops, Ustashe and Chetniks.
It all took place in the valley of Neretva and Prozor basin. In month of February Partisan units, civilian refugees along with wounded found themselves surrounded. In those difficult times Josip Broz Tito, the partisan commander, ordered to bring down all the bridges in that area. Four of them brought down on Neretva and one on Rama, the river.
The german commanders were ensured that partisans, along with the wounded and civiliand, won't be heading to East over the river Neretva, but to North in the valley of Vrbas river.
On  the other heand, the breaktruogh didn't happen as it was expected by German command, but in Jablanica across the river Neretva.
However, breaking out of this kind was quite of unique phenomena in history of war.
The heavy force surrounding much weaker opponent was shattered without any outside help.
