Insurgent Hetzer

The uprising is the biggest battle of our people for freedom on their own country in its recent history in terms of the number of active people and those suffering. And even though we are talking about an insurgent crackdown, the insurgent struggle at the end of the wolves swept away all over the hitherto unbridled land of the protector.

The uprising broke out on May 5, 1945 and lasted practically until May 9. The most intense fighting in Prague took place on May 6 and 8. At that time, the insurgents were helped to a certain extent, and in some localities the Vlasovs, ie the Russian Liberation Army (ROA), helped. The Vlasovs were originally Soviet soldiers who entered the side of the conqueror, who eventually decided to fight against the Nmcm again under the pressure of circumstance.

The Germans in Prague on May 8 at three o’clock in the afternoon signed a surrender with the fact that they would leave the city and head down to Pilsen, where they wanted to look for a test at the Americans. Departure should have started on the same day at 6 p.m. The insurgent negotiated the surrender of German troops to Stalin, who wanted to see the Red Army as the liberator of Prague.

The remnants of the Waffen-SS disregarded the surrender and continued their wisdom. With the last SS, then, on May 9, members of the Soviet tank units arrived in Prague that year (it is true that the Soviets arrived in the suburbs at night, but they rested a little and repented, and the sun rises).

Prask povstn, May 1945

The crack rises in the hearing

According to daily mucus, on May 5, about 19.5 thousand people, including 1,716 officers, were subject to the Military Headquarters of Greater Prague, and on May 8, there were 35.5 thousand people, including 3,292 officers. Dal rebels were not even registered, do not even talk about the builders of barricades. On the other hand, according to a well-known estimate of the insurgent commander, General Karel Kutlvar, twelve thousand people could stand up to the insurgent fighting with weapons in hand.

The losses on the rebel party were more than three thousand dead and more than three thousand wounded in Prague (washed by the present country of Prague), where they are sweating and non-fighting. Just for comparison, we should state that during the Carpathian-Dukla operation, the 1st Czechoslovak Army Corps had 935 casualties, 4,518 wounded and 756 missing (including the missing will practically fall in the world).

Pslunk ROA fell in the uprising of about three hundred. And on the last day, May 9, 1945, about twenty soldiers of the Rud Army went.

And according to, let’s look at some of the rebel weapons.
