Operation Una-Sava Biegung

Una-Sava bend

'Una Sava' was a German and Croat operation against the partisan forces of Josip Broz Tito in the puppet state of Croatia in Axis-occupied Yugoslavia (3/5 January 1943).

The undertaking’s objective was the destruction of an undetermined partisan concentration, believed to number around 800 persons, in the Una-Sava river bend in the area between Prijedor and Bosanska Novi.

The German contribution to the Axis force was elements of the 721st Grenadierregiment and 661st Artillerieregiment of Generalleutnant Josef Reichert’s 714th Division, and that of the Croats the 1, 2 and 3/2nd Mountain Brigade, 4/3rd Mountain Brigade and the 12th Ustase Battalion.

Other than its operations order, no record of this operation has been found, suggesting that the undertaking was perhaps cancelled.
