Here is the complete German after-action report for "Schwarz". Again, many thanks to "Avijacija bez granica" forum members who provided these scans.

Greetings,

I'm a bit confused by the following: the scan in the last post of the first page states that 371 Italian prisoners have been freed; now, Djilas mentions the order of the Supreme HQ sometimes in early June which called for execution of all italian prisoners with the "Main operational group" (IIRC "not more than 300"). It seems that either there were more Italians with the partisans (perhaps from the May battles in MN), or that the order has not been carried out fully. It should be noted that no German prisoners have been recovered, which probably means that no special order was needed in their case...
An interesting question in the context of researching the POW history of the Balkans '41-'45...

Cheers,

Gaius
