Comrade Scooturo wounded, crankshaft problems, waiting for mechanic.
War began in 1939, Germans marched through Europe and invaded it
pretty easily. After bombings of London everyone was expecting Germans
to start war with Great Britain, but suddenly Hitler moved his forces
on Soviet Union.
In Soviet Union they have been aware, but not prepared and in first weeks of war Soviet Army lost 3 millions of troops.
Here, at first defence line, German march through Europe ended. They met resistance of fanatics.
We call this bunker by name of it's commander, a Kiporenko bunker.
This one was never taken, soldiers were bricked up and kept resist
untill they all died with hunger.
While Stalin and Zhukov argued at the point if they should pull off
forces from Kiev the defenders of this bunker decided to stay and not
join army for retreat. It was their free will.
In old Soviet
Union they loved to make a cult of a hero. Everyone knew the names of
some liteary characters, who may never exists... they used to glorify
some fake heroes while the real ones have been forgotten, like the
soldiers of this bunker, no one knows their names, not even how many of
them were inside.
