Parabellum Purloined, Vodka Vanquished

"It's cold today, comrade," Lev says.

"It's cold every day," Ivan replies.

Ivan yawns.

Lev says, "Some vodka will wake you up, comrade." Typical conscript thinking.

Ivan says, "I knew a man… he'd put boot polish on bread, wait for the alcohol to soak in. Then he'd eat the bread."

"It's not that bad!" Lev says.

Lev picks his nose and comments, "I wonder what Stalin's doing right now?"

"Probably doing his job," Ivan says. "Which is leading us to victory."

"You know what I hate?" Lev says. "I hate when Finns shout at us during battle. I don't understand Finnish!"

Ivan nods.

"What could they be saying?" Lev wonders. "Good morning? Death is afoot? Don't touch the horses?"

"Maybe they want us to surrender," Ivan says.

Lev shakes his head. "No, no, they shoot prisoners. I've seen them shot before."

Ivan nods.

Ivan mutters, "I wish I wasn't a machine gunner. I'd like to be a tanker."

Lev says, "I wish I was a cook. Stand in a warm kitchen all day. And no one would notice if I was doing a bad job at it because the food is terrible anyway." He wipes a booger on Ivan's machine gun.

"Don't do that!" Ivan snaps. "What would the commandant say?"

"My apologies, comrade," Lev says, flicking it off.

Lev says, "Got any cigarettes?"

Ivan shakes his head.

Lev yawns.

Ivan also yawns.

Ivan shouts, "A Finn! Stealing our precious ammo!"

Luukas sneaks up to where Johan's set, keeping quiet till close by the man. He whispers, "Two didn't see us." and blinks as a machine gun is heard. The man spins around to try to make out the town.

Lev peers, "Where?"

From Raatevaara, a male voice shouts, "Thieves! Thieves, comrades, in the town!".

Johan fires off a shot as soon as he sees the MG spouting fire, trying to cover the other finn.

From Raatevaara, a male voice shouts, "Bah. He has cowardly retreated, comrades!".

From Raatevaara, a male voice shouts, "AAAAAAAaaaaaaa the capitalist shot my vodka!". (Mikhail)

Ivan shouts, "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!".

Lev pats Ivan's shoulder. "There, there. There, there."

Ivan sobs, "All of Mikhail's vodka! Gone!"

Lev says, "Now now, I'll teach you how you can get alcohol from boot polish. All you need is some bread. I'm sure the commissar will give you extra bread rations since you bagged yourself a Finn."

Ivan sighs, "It's not the same…"

«Ground Combat» You hear the sound of Rifles from Grass!

Ivan shouts, "WHO'S SHOOTING NOW? DO WE HAVE ANY DOGS LEFT TO SEND?".
