EXCERPT FROM LITERATURE:
“On May 3rd, the 13th Brigade continued the attack on Rakek and Unec near Cerknica, and the 11th Brigade advanced on Grčarevac and Jasikovci, in front of D. Logatec. The 13th Brigade, with minimal losses, liberated Unec and Rakek on the same day, and the next day, on May 4th, after an hour-long battle, they took control of Cerknica and Grahovo. However, during the day, the Division Headquarters had to engage the majority of the Artillery Brigade, and the following day, two battalions from the general reserve of the 14th Brigade. Around 9 p.m. on May 3rd, the 11th Brigade, with strong artillery support and heavy losses inflicted on the enemy, destroyed the strongest defense stronghold in Grčarevac. The next day, with the support of the divisional reserve, they captured the villages of Kalce and Gornji Logatec and, with several artillery fire concentrations (247 shells of 75-105 mm), Logatec was also liberated. The enemy’s strongholds in front of Logatec (Grčarevac, Elevation 511, Kale) represented the last positions where the Division could have been prevented from accessing the Ljubljana Marshes. That’s why they fiercely defended them. The backbone of the defense consisted of one German and two assault battalions of the Slovenian Home Guard under the command of Vuk Rupnik, and they were reinforced with two tanks and a battery of 100 mm howitzers. There were also remnants of the SS non-commissioned officers’ school, two to three company-sized units of the Slovenian Home Guard, and some Chetniks, from unidentified formations and numbers. In the battles for the liberation of Logatec and Cerknica, the Division had over 40 fallen fighters and commanders, as well as just under a hundred wounded (…)”.
