Hello "Igorn" -Igorn wrote:Jagdtiger,
Based on these facts, I came to the conclusion that some Feldgrau visitors are interested to study or discuss only successful operations of Nazi Germany and keep quiet & completely ignore military wins and achievements of the Russian Army.
Last German troops in Bucharest surrendered on 26 August. On 27 August, the rest of the German troops north of the city in the Baneasa forest were eliminated. Only the command point at Otopeni, further to the north, remained. On 28, they retreated towards Ploiesti, but were taken POWs at Gherghita (25 km south of Ploiesti). The resistance at Ploiesti ceased on 30 August.Igorn wrote:Curious Volksgrenadier,
Thank you. Excellent stuff. Some more information about German casualties in the Jassy-Kishynev operations of 1944 from David Glantz book, When Titans clashed: "...By 29 August 1944, Army Group South Ukraine had suffered a fate similar to that of Army Group Center- the destruction of Sixth Army and two Rumanian armies and the utter collapse of the German front in Rumania. The German lost control of the Ploesti oilfields and Bucharest by 2 September. German and Rumanian losses exceeded 400,000 men at a cost to the Soviets of about 67,000 casualties. By 1 September, Army Group South, renamed Army Group South Ukraine, had strength returns of only 200,000 men, with 2,000 allied forces. An Axis retreat ensued across the Carpathians, which did not halt until Soviet forces had penetrated Bulgaria and swung westward into the plains of eastern Hungary."
