HUSAR #11

 3.50

In Husar 10 we wrote about  Operation Rösselsprung (named after a knight’s move in chess), a combined airborne and ground assault by the German XV Mountain Corps and their allies on the Supreme Headquarters of the Yugoslav Partisans located in the Bosnian town of Drvar aimed at capturing or killing Marshal Josip Broz Tito, and in this issue we told Part 2 of that story. Furthermore, we wrote about operation “Torch” – a lesson in logistics. It was the name given to the British-American invasion of French North Africa during the North African Campaign of the Second World War which started in November 1942 and we, among other things, analyzed the logistic problems they encountered during their operation. We also wrote about a tank destroyer Jagdpanther used by the Germans in WWII and tercio, a Spanish infantry unit with command of up to 3000 soldiers that was used during the time that Habsburg Spain dominated Europe.
