Operation "Sava". After a hard, seven-month training in France and Germany, a bloody mutiny, political-religious brainwashing, march through Syrmia and cleansing of the Bosut Forest – the stirred-up, impatient and armed-to-the-teeth Bosnian SS volunteers finally return home, ready to fight. Upon arriving in Brčko, the new headquarters of the 13th SS Division, the volunteers take over the watch at the Sava Bridge, at the town entrance. (Note: instead of the usual hand grenades, some of the soldiers stuck trench knives in their belts.)

Operacija "Sava". Posle naporne, sedmomesečne obuke u Francuskoj i Nemačkoj, jedne krvave pobune, političko-verskog ispiranja mozga, marša kroz Srem i čišćenja Bosutskih šuma – nahuškani, nestrpljivi i do zuba naoružani bosanski SS-dobrovoljci konačno se vraćaju kući, za borbu spremni. Po dolasku u Brčko, novo sedište 13. SS-divizije, dobrovoljci preuzimaju stražu kod Savskog mosta, na ulazu u grad. (Napomena: neki od vojnika su, umesto uobičajenih ručnih bombi, za pojas zadenuli rovovske noževe.)
