War Stories

Before instating his new starszy sierżant (senior sergeant), Kapitan Bzik was hoping to swap some war stories and get chummy. Rudek seems interested in neither.

Just for reference: the Kapitan (Captain) commands the company, about 100 men. Czerep, the Porucznik, is his junior officer, who commands the platoon Rudek and his friends are in.
