Battle of the Don River

Post by Victor1234 » Wed Apr 19, 2006 1:24 pm

Hi there, my great-grandfather fought in WW2 on the Hungarian side and got taken prisoner by the Soviets during the Battle of the Don River....looking on the internet, there is not much about it besides the fact that the majority of the 2nd Hungarian Army got wiped out.....so if anyone has information about the battle, I'd be interested to know about it.

Hmmm, nope, didn't work. If it helps, he was taken to a Siberian coal mine and worked there for 7 years before they let him go home.(the war had already been over for quite some time then)

IMHO "Don-kanyar", by Péter Szabó is the "definite" about the subject. I don't know if its available also in English, but perhaps this is no problem for Victor from Budapest 8)
