Good morning all,

Am guessing - and hoping - this is best section for this post.

The Battle of Odžak (Odzak) is called the last battle of WWII in Europe.

It was a battle "between Yugoslav Partisans and Independent Croatian forces".

Much info in article.

The Last battle of WWII in Europe, its true. There is a saying "Berling capitulated - Odžak didn't".
Cheers,

Hi ExYugoslav,

please quantify "catastrophic" and cite your source.

first of all, my apologies, I am relativeli new on this forum and I try at my best. Of course, the number of the fallen on the prtizan side have never been made public and probably will not be published by the central archives in Belgrade for a long time. The only sources available are the stories of the direct participants, which are also accessible on the Internet. Of course, when it comes to catastrophic casualties, this is only considering the battle and the number of people involved and fallen on both sides, but these are not numbers that are alarming compared to other WWII battles in the Balkans.
