Bitka o Strecniansku tiesnavu / Battle of Strecno gorge

Pamatnik Boje o Malú Fatru - Bitka o Strecniansku tiesnavu (31. august – 3. september 1944)
Pri vypuknutí SNP stáli Nemci pred naliehavou požiadavkou obnovit prejazdnost komunikácií na Slovensku, ktoré boli od júla roku 1944 sústavne prerušované partizánmi. Práve úsek od Žiliny po Prešov bol dôležitý z hladiska prísunu materiálu a posíl na východný front. Preto boli sformované na území Ríše a Protektorátu bojové skupiny plukovníkov von Ohlena a von Juncka, ktoré dorazili na územie Slovenska a zacali s bojovými akciami. Bitka v Strecnianskej tiesnave bola bitkou práve medzi týmito nemeckými jednotkami a 1. ceskoslovensku armádou spolu s 1. ceskoslovenskou partizánskou brigádou M.R. Štefánika a francúzskym partizánskym oddielom kpt. Georgesa de Lannuriena.

V tiesnave, napriek velkému nasadeniu povstalcov i francúzskej partizánskej brigády, ktorá sa v mnohom vyrovnala profesionálnej armáde, sa nepodarilo Nemcov zastavit. Výrazne sa prejavila velká prevaha Nemcov v tažkej technike, kedže povstalci postrádali protitankové i protilietadlové zbrane. Napriek neúspechu povstalcov sa touto akciou podarilo Nemcom zabránit v postupe na Martin a do centra povstaleckého územia a výrazne podporit povstanie v jeho prvých dnoch. Nemci iba ovládli už znicený úsek košicko-bohunínskej železnice. V celej bitke sa im nepodarilo využit velkú prevahu tankových jednotiek, ktoré sa nemohli v úzkej tiesnave rozvinút. Ich velkou výhodou však bola podpora zo vzduchu.

Mala Fatra Battles - Battle of Strecno gorge (31. august – 3. september 1944)
At the outbreak of the SNP (abbr. for Slovenské národné povstanie – engl. Slovak National Uprising) German forces faced with the urgent need to restore an effective network of communications in Slovakia, because since July 1944 these were constantly being interrupted by the partisans. Especially important was the line Žilina – Prešov, being vital for the movement of material supplies and reinforcements to the Eastern Front. Two Battle Groups under the Command of Col. von Ohlen and Col. von Junck were formed in Germany and in the Protectorate and sent to Slovakia, where they immediately began their battle actions. Battle of Strecno gorge was battle between these German groups and 1. czechoslovak army supported by 1. czechoslovak Partisan Brigade of M.R. Štefánik and French partisans under command of Cpt. Georges de Lannurien.

The battle was won by the Germans, but during the struggle the Uprising soldiers have achieved an undeniable strategic success: they have managed to prevent the adversary’s further advance towards Turciansky Sv. Martin and then deeper into rebel-held territory.
