Well spotted! The aerial image showing the extent of the excavated system is very interesting. Remarkable stuff.

Spooky. Makes me realize how lucky I am to have never had to experience war. I find it highly disturbing to see the randomness of death in war. These guys just happend to have been in the wrong plave at the wrong time. No matter how "brave" or "terrified" they were as soldiers. I makes me rmember that scene in band of brothers were the lieutenant tells the soldier who just can't fight and breaks down in a fire fight: "Your mistake is that you have hope to get through this alive." That's just one of these statements that I'll remember for a long time.
