From the memories of the survivor:

...We're already a few days closer to the Monte Simonne. It is rumored that linečtí the sappers to drill and that will be blown up. And really. 20. September 1916 in the morning already about half 4. hour handing out coffee, and then all hands to the caverns, except for the guards. About half 6. o'clock in the morning were the mines electrically ignited. It was a few of them. The effect was terrible. There was charged 15 000 kg of dynamite. 400 Italian men were captured, and 12 officers and about 100 Italians buried. From the Italian side started a terrible fire. The entire top of the conical mountain, which dominated the whole area, was hit. The mountain had to be right after the explosion us occupied. Covers, the position or the trenches no more, and we are like a flock of rozprášených sparrows were jumping in the huge dělostřelbě all calibers from stone to stone. And it was no wonder, when several men, seeing all the horror and hopelessness, has gone mad. She such a drum barrage works really for a man of strong nerves, let alone on people, both mentally and physically exhausted. With the nominee through the gloom night stand with the front guards. Oh, it was a mess. On the steep hillside, skrčen behind the boulder, lay each man and waited, if hit by a fragment grenade or sypajícím rocks. Many even move he couldn't because he was in constant danger of sliding down the mine a few hundred meters. Silent-if at the moment of gunfire, was heard a terrible roar, half-buried in Italy, who in various ways along the slope of the hill they lay with přeráženými limbs, and to which in the current situation no one could keep them contributed to help. The next day went with our party to the enemy parlamentář, to arrange a brief truce in this section, to be wounded and zasypaným Italians to help, but in vain. The Italian headquarters feared that it would be a truce used with our part also to the fortifications, and the thunder beat on and hell it took on for us and for you losers who slowly tišili, but still the third day, with here and there one heard from me..."
