CASUALTIES OF WAR & BATTLEFIELD LITTER

Strange as it may seem the battlefield is
cluttered with different types of abandoned and destroyed vehicles.
Personal belongings, uniforms, helmets, maps and other military documents, discarded paperwork, manuals, medical kit dressings, bandages, weapons, ammunition along with its expended brass (casings ejected from the weapons during the battle) and other types of equipment. Left behind on this field are the dead, wounded and dying, that are left to the mercy of the enemy.
