The German high command devised a plan to eliminate Josef Broz Tito, the commander of the Partisan forces in Yugoslavia. Code named Operation Rösselsprung (Knight's Move), the plan involved a combined paratroop and glider assault by an SS Parachute Battalion on Tito's HQ located at Drvar. The main objective was to attack Tito's cave and kill or capture him. Other objectives were to eliminate the attached Allied Missions (American, British and Soviet) located in Drvar, and to disrupt the Partisan communication network by destroying the telephone exchange building and the radio station. Upon completion of their tasks, the SS Paratroops were to await relief by ground forces that were to cordon off the area. The Partisan leadership had been well informed ahead of time of the German plans for ground operations around Drvar, but they were totally unaware of the impending airborne assault.
