EXCERPT FROM LITERATURE:
“During the night, the battalions of the 13th Brigade captured the strongholds on Gnjilo Hill and Tanovića Hana (Busak). However, the wire obstacles fortified at Bakračuša (with reinforced garrisons, including two mountain and anti-tank guns, as well as three light and one medium mortar) were not overcome, so the fight continued throughout the day. At that time, the German combat group ‘Bolman’ (3/370th Grenadier Regiment and some militia, totaling up to 500 soldiers) intervened from Nevesinje and surprised the 1st and 4th Battalions of the 14th (Youth) Brigade at Vilenjak and Bukovica, capturing Biograd and burning down Udrežnje.” In the brigade, there were 3 dead and 4 wounded.
