In mid-November they tried to break through Danilovgrad and Nikšić toward Sarajevo, but Yugoslav communist forces who were supported by two British artillery batteries stopped them after ten days fighting. At the end of November 1944 they had to retreat through a much longer route, via Kolašin, Prijepolje and Višegrad.
