Well, so it is true... I completelly forgot about this topic, and now i read Kpsmo's post, above. No, is not Radu Tudoran the writer. Was a book writed by Radu Theodoru who cited that source - the momoryes of Toma Avramut. Anyway... is such an easy think to name all those books from pre '89 just propaganda... But Kosmo, all things disliked by ones are just propaganda of the other ones. :P Just wait and see... :lol:

There were several Totenkopf companies in combat against romanian revolutionaries in 1849 battles:
- 3rd Company /German Legion Totenkopf was part of the brigade led by Major Csutak who fought in mid february and march 1849 against the Romanian revolutionaries;
- 5th and 6th Companies joined the 3rd Company in may 1849 in Brad region and took part in the campaign conducted by Major Hatvani in the Apuseni Mountains;
- from the soldiers of these 3 companies about 3/4 were killed or missing in the defeat of Major Hatvany campaign;
- 4th and 7th Companies arrived in mid may 1849 in Huedin for participation in the fighting in the mountains against the Romanian revolutionaries, but their faith is unknown as sources are missing.

Hungarian troops around Huedin were led by Vasvari Pal. I found no mention about a german company between his units. The only mention is about the hungarian national guards he led, but this doesnt mean the german legion was not present.

The german company which participated at 1st Abrud battle under the leading of major Hatvani managed to withdraw at Brad with a part of it's men, without being mentioned how many were lost in this battle. Major Hatvani intended to leave this company behind (without telling them about the retreat) to cover his retreat. The german company found out about the retreat and pulled back with the bulk of hungarian troops.

The german company which participated at 2nd battle from Abrud was practically wiped out, only 6 men survived, wounded, and were captured by romanians. Detained at Cāmpeni under the supervision of Avram Iancu's men, they survived the next period and were put to freedom later.
