    Is there any memoires regarding the soviet participation in the Belgrade operation and the Srem Front? Also what are the russian thoughts regarding operations in Yugoslavia?

    I never heard about Srem Front.

    I have no such memoirs.

    The actions in Yugoslavia are described as very successful operations to liberate Eastern Europe. It was not too difficult.

    It is described as one more glorious victory of red Army.

      I have at least two books about operations in Yugoslavia and one of them about in particular Belgrade operation. but lack of time as usual prevents me from handling of them

        Here is a personal memoir from a resident of Belgrade.

        http://timewitnesses.org/english/~carmella.html

        Some political backround on the non-aligned status of Tito's Yugoslavia.

        Here's an OOB for the Partisan and Soviet forces involved in the Belgrade operation.

        Not sure how much any of these sites will help.
        Scientists have announced they've discovered a cure for apathy. However no one has shown the slightest bit of interest !!

          Andrey, the Srem front were the German defences set up in the serbian region of Srem. It became a front when the NOVJ forces reached these defences were the liberation stopped. It was broken through in April 1945 when a Yugoslavian T-34 detachment lead the spearhead that broke through the defences. I know the Red Army was on the Srem Front since I saw the casualty rate for them.

          Amvas, if you ever find a time....you know.

          tigersqn, that doesnt help much but thanks for the info anyway.

            A friend of mine from Belgrade told me of his parent's memories about the war, his father was in Germany in a forced labour camp. His mother was in Belgrade and recalled the liberation, the noise of katushias, the execution of some German POWs by a female partisan soldier...pretty nasty business.

            Tito's partisan army played a huge role liberating Yugoslavia, I get the impression they had become almost a regular army in size and firepower.
