Operation "Black". The commander of the 1st Mountain Division, Major General Walter Stettner, observes the operation from his command post, somewhere in Montenegro. His division is remembered for climbing the highest peak of Europe, Elbrus (Caucasus) – as well as for numerous war crimes, committed against the Albanians, Greeks, Yugoslavs and thousands of own former allies, the Italians. The general was killed near Belgrade, in October the following year.

Operacija "Crno". Komandant 1. brdske divizije, general-major Valter Štetner, prati operaciju sa svog komandnog mesta, negde u Crnoj Gori. Njegova divizija je ostala upamćena po osvajanju najvišeg vrha Evrope, Elbrusa (na Kavkazu) – kao i po mnogobrojnim ratnim zločinima, počinjenim nad Albancima, Grcima, Jugoslovenima i hiljadama svojih bivših saveznika, Italijana. General je poginuo kod Beograda, u oktobru naredne godine.
