The archetypes of the successful guerrilla/partisan operation that target and mission of which the interdiction of the enemy Main Supply Route [MSR] during wartime the Soviet partisan in action: "Rail War" and "Concerto":
Guerrilla/partisans sabotage and destruction of German military rail transport most successful, GUERRILLA/PARTISAN OPERATIONS DURING WARTIME MOST EFFECTIVE WHEN DONE IN FURTHERANCE OF AND COORDINATED WITH CONVENTIONAL MILITARY OPERATIONS.
1. Rail War.
"On the night of August 3, 1943 167 guerrillas [bands of guerrillas?] Belarus, Kalinin, Leningrad, Smolensk and Orel regions, as well as part of the Ukrainian guerrillas simultaneously launched an operation 'rail war' . . . Only during the first hours of the operation was blown up at least 42,000 tracks. History has never seen this magnitude - of sabotage were carried out on the front at 1000 km and from the front line to the western border of the USSR (depth up to 750 km)."
"On 19 September 1943, an operation by Soviet partisans began under the code name “Concert.” It was one of the largest operations of World War II in its effects on the incapacitation of railroad communications in the logistics of the enemy rear . . . and was coordinated with the forthcoming offensive of the Soviet troops in the Smolensk Offensive operation . . . as part of the Summer-Autumn Campaign of 1943 . . . The operation included participation of 193 partisan detachments and groups totalling more than 210,000 men, women, and children."
Damn partisans. Thanks to the web site "Some of the best partisane-miners" for this image. The results of such sabotage words not needed to express further.
"Rail War" and "Concerto" NOT stopping the forward flow of supplies, that interdiction not 100 % effective but greatly slowing down logistics, complicating an already bad situation and doing so at the worst possible moment.
AND counter-measures often taken to secure a MSR often draconian and harsh, prodigious numbers of troops needed merely for guard duty, a further drain on resources.
