50 kms east of Munich, June 12th 1985: For the first two days the attack in the south had gone reasonably well, but many roads were jammed, or mined, and a lot of bridges were damaged. As a result there were Czech units spread all the way back to the Danube. During the night, the Czech 4th Army commander made the decision to halt and regroup. Fortunately his rear echelons with fuel and ammunition were efficient, as were the tank recovery crews. By noon the next day the plan had been changed to punch a hole through the thin German line with 3rd Czech MRD, then launch the rested 9th Tank Div loose in the enemy's rear. The choice of whether to go to High to the NW, or Low to the SW to be made later. This short respite was welcomed by the Germans, who had units trying to set up a front line, as they waited for reinforcements coming from either Ingolstadt, or west of Munich, to try to stem the tide.
