The excitement of digging in the places of battles can be compared
with fishing. This bit when you pull out something and anticipate what
can it be.. each item tell something and history comes from the ground.
The most important in this hobby not to fish out an old mine. One
got to be careful with rusted explosivesas, they are unpredictable, a
wrong move and ya sandals will fly over The Serpents Wall.
This is the place of battle for liberation of Kiev in the late of
autumn 1943. German army was leaving on the same road that they come
and there were fightings all along the road.

Take a carabine that rested for 60 years under ground, clean it and go in attack, it work. This is German quality.
Locals boys the best guides through the bunkers.
In each village there is someone who lost arms, hands.. playing with the war toys. They are invalids of war.
