Extensive Hungarian "victory map" tracing the homeward route taken by Hungarian soldiers of the 8th anti-aircraft division on their return from invading Ukraine.
The map tracks the route taken by the Hungarian forces over the months of November and December 1941. They start in Kharkiv Oblast, approximately halfway between Kharkiv and Donetsk, before heading to Berdychiv, which they reach in the middle of December. From there, they return to Hungary via a rail connection.
Hungary lent its support to Germany during Operation Barbarossa only after some deliberation, initially balking from aiding the obvious aggressor. However, following likely false flag attacks on Hungarian cities, Hungary committed to joining the effort. Hungarian forces would remain limited compared to vast numbers of Russian troops committed, but they were present in many of the southern battles along the Eastern Front, including the Siege of Sevastapol.
