Museum of the Ostrava Offensive Operation in Hrabyne, Czech Republic. The Operation caused over 100 thousand casualties on each side and Czechoslovaks took part in its main Battle of Ostrava with their 1st Czechoslovak Tank Brigade (65x T-34/85 medium tanks) and 1st Czechoslovak Mixed Aviation Division (2x fighter regiments with Lavochkin La-5 fighter planes and 1x battle regiment with Ilyushin Il-2 Shturmovik battle planes). To find out more, read my novel, The Corner of Death.
