Operation "Ball Lightning". German mountain troopers, members of the III Battalion, 98th Regiment, 1st Mountain Division, pose for a photograph in their half-tracks (Sd.Kfz. 10/4) in front of a huge Partisan slogan "Death to fascism – freedom to the people", written on the facade of Hotel "Čajniče" (which previously housed the Partisan headquarters). Still visible in the middle of the facade is a German "V" (Victoria, victory), which was overpainted by the Partisans with their five-pointed star. Staying in the town of Čajniče for the past week was the Partisan II Dalmatian Brigade (of the II Proletarian Division), which, faced with a clearly superior enemy, withdrew without a fight this time.

Operacija "Kugličasta munja". Nemački brdski lovci, pripadnici III bataljona 98. puka 1. brdske divizije, poziraju za fotografiju na svojim poluguseničarima (Sd.Kfz. 10/4) ispred ogromne partizanske parole "Smrt fašizmu – sloboda narodu", napisane na fasadi Hotela "Čajniče" (u kojem je prethodno bio smešten partizanski štab). Na sredini fasade još uvek se vidi nemačko "V" (Viktorija, pobeda), preko kojeg su partizani nacrtali svoju petokraku. U gradu Čajniču proteklih je nedelju dana boravila partizanska II dalmatinska brigada (II proleterske divizije), koja se ovog puta, suočena sa vidno nadmoćnijim neprijateljem, povukla bez borbe.
