The narrow valley on the Neretva River in Yugoslavia was the site of one of the most bitter battles of the Second World War.  It was here, that Josip Broz Tito and his communist partisans were encircled by a combined force of German troops, Italian soldiers, Chetniks loyal to the former King and fascist Ustashis and it was here, that Tito pushed his men to break out of this trap.  The partisan leaders were faced with many, difficult decisions during this battle and often had to grapple with the logic of military strategy versus their conflicts of conscience ... but in the end, saving their weakened forces from annihilation had to take precedence.

Das enge Tal an der Neretva in Jugoslawien war im Jahre 1943 Schauplatz einer der erbittertsten Schlachten des Zweiten Weltkrieges. Hier erzwang Josip Broz Tito mit seiner Partisanenarmee den Ausbruch aus dem Kessel, den die deutsche Wehrmacht, das italienische Heer, die königstreuen Tschetniks und die faschistischen Ustaschi gebildet hatten. Der Partisanenkommandeur hat sich dabei mit vielen schicksalhaften Entscheidungen auseinanderzusetzen und muß unter dem Gewissenskonflikt - militärischen Denkens versus menschliches Fühlen - eine Lösung für sich und seine geschwächte Armee finden.
