Hungarian soldiers around Warsaw 1943-1944

Post by TPMM » Sat May 28, 2011 4:55 am

Hi to all.

I am still trying to finish my work about Polish guerilla movement eastwards from Warsaw (Radzymin-Wolomin-Tluszcz-Wyszkow). I am repeatedly coming across informations, that Armia Krajowa (Home Army) was neither gaining nor capturing, but receiving firearms from Hungarian units in this area.
My question would be: which units might have been involved in such an activity?

Don't worry, be crazy ;]

Hate to see unanswered requests for help = why we are here :->

Hope all well.

I don't know if the below ref will help or if you have already checked it out but it is offered with all hope that it does help.

Which Hungarian units have you since identified and what progress, if any, have you achieved in your research? Sounds interesting tale.

The commander of the Hungarian corps under the German 9th Army reported that Hungarian troops were inclined to fraternise with the locals and their officers were having difficulty controlling them. No purpose would be served by employing his reserve division to block the supply of Polish reserves into Warsaw. It was decided not to employ the 12th Reserve Division in a security role.

From the log of the German 9th Army. Taken from - Rising 44 by Norman Davies page 289

Hope it is of some help.
