Post by bov1313rf »

KZT Triglav (History Club Triglav) from Slovenia is organizing a re-enactment event ''Battle at Rupnik line'', fighting which occur on April 6th, 1941, when German troops attacked Kingdom of Yugoslavia.

Event will be held on Saturday, April 28th, 2012, at small town Žiri, 70 km NW from Ljubljana, on original Rupnik line fortifications. All participants should arrive till Friday 27th, evening.

This is for the first time that we are going to reenact unit of Yugoslav Royal Army; the unit itself we are putting together these days (should be ready and trained for combat in two months).

Rupnik line – a Slovene version of linie Maginot; strong fortifications along the border with Austria and Italia. Build in 1936 - 1941, under command of general Leon (Lav) Rupnik. Some large underground bunker systems; some fortifications high in the mountains. On April 6th, 1941 not completed.

Any of you who would be interested to join please ask for details.
