Fun Facebook Group: The Ghosts of the Eastern Front

Attention history and antique gun buffs, this group may be one for you. The Ghosts of the Eastern Front is a Facebook group dedicated to the Russo-German conflict within the Second World War. The group features, photos, videos, and stories from the deadliest front.

Recently, photos have been popping up in earnest over firearms, militaria, and explosives still being found today. Given the amount of men and machines from the front, I would propose it would be entirely possible that we could never find all the buried munitions and equipment.

Hit the link here or click on the photo to visit the group. If they share your interests and passion, join them and share yours with them.

    i flipped through the pages, seems like more than one grave site being dug up. I doubt the proper authorities are being notified which in that case makes it grave robbing. Also UXO is nothing to mess with, when I was a kid in Luzon outside of Manila several children were killed and insured by WWII munitions found in the jungle, but I did see a lot of cool and creepy relics and human remains.

    I remember seeing a documentary about Guadalcanal several years ago where they showed how much unexploded ordinance and weapons were lying around after over 70 years. They even went into a small cave and found the skeleton of a Japanese soldier who was sitting upright on a rock and his rusted Arsaki rifle was still in his lap.
