Hallo everybody!
Because recently I wach the well-known Sergiu Nicolaescu-made Noi cei din linia intai-movie, and I remembered an old unanswered question I had, I need your help.
Of course, as I write in the title it's about the battle for the cota 310 Radio Donau, somewhere in the Czech Republic. The only useful thing I recently found on internet was the involvement of one batallion of the 34. Infantry Regiment for our side against unknown german and hungarian (if that is true) forces trying to push west to surrender to the US troops (if the story taken from the movie is correct). What I am interested in is what other forces fight on our side and of course the german and hungarian forces -size, units, equipment, not forgetting the losses for every from the two combatants.
Thank you!

Russian and German versions :
May 7, after the Army Group "Center" was nearly surrounded to the east of Prague, he gave the order to retreat to the west. Then Schorner tried hiding in civilian clothes but he was captured in Austria by the American troops May 15, 1945 and at the end of May 1945 transferred to the Soviet command.

Internet :
1st. Battalion/ 34th. Inf,Regiment/ 9th Inf.Division fought in Banska Bystrica, Roznava, Stratena, Skoja, Hulu, Scotics.
The attack on the Radio Donau, 8 May 1945, was the last combat action in which 1st.Inf.Battalion participated in the WW2.
