German soldiers ww1 barbed wire cutters re issued in ww2 and used they are in relic but solid condition but have nicely cleaned they have rusted solid with some rust damage but are unusual to find from the battlefield.The wire cutters were recovered from the battlefield at the Seelow Heights in 1945 the opening battle for Berlin.A very nice relic from this famous battlefield so late on in the war.
This battle is often incorporated into the Battle of the Oder-Neisse. The Seelow Heights was where some of the most bitter fighting in the overall battle took place, but it was only one of several crossing points along the Oder and Neisse rivers where the Soviets attacked. The Battle of the Oder-Neisse was itself only the opening phase of the Battle of Berlin.
The result was the encirclement of the German 9th Army and the Battle of Halbe.
