VRUTKY, SLOVAKIA, 12 September 1944: Through the combined, though not cooperative, efforts of the Communist-led Slovakian partisans and the Slovak Army, the downward thrust into central Slovakia by the Panzer-Division Tatra had been halted at Vrutky by September 7th. On September 10th, the commander of the Slovakian army had reorganized the army into six “Tactical Groups” to make the army more responsive and to make better use of the limited number of regular officers available for command on the battlefield. The 5th Tactical Group now faced Panzer-Division Tatra at Vrutky. While consistently being able to get around the flanks and to the rear of the German positions in and around Vrutky, the 5th Tactical Group had not been able to dislodge Tatra from the town. The 5th Tactical Group’s final effort came on September 12th with the Slovakians committing the last of their heavy armor. Despite the tenacity of the Slovakian initial defense against the Germans, and their subsequent counter-attacks, the 5th Tactical Group could not take back Vrutky. A stalemate ensued until the 21st of September, when German units attacking from the southwest unhinged the 5th Tactical Group’s defense and forced it to withdraw from its blocking position in front of Panzer-Division Tatra....
