Handball is a 7-on-7 team ball game (6 fielders and a goalie on each team). They play with their hands. The aim of the game is to throw the ball as many times as possible into the opponent's goal (3 m × 2 m). The game is played in two halves of 30 minutes, with a break of 15 minutes between halves.
Modern handball is played indoors on a rectangular court of 40×20 m. The goal is surrounded by a 6-meter (20-foot) area where only the goalie defender is allowed. Goals must be scored by throwing the ball from outside the area or by "sliding" through it. The sport is usually played indoors, but there are outdoor versions of the game in the form of field handball and Czech handball (which used to be more common) and beach handball.

The Great Patriotic War is the war of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics against Nazi Germany and its European allies (Hungary, Italy, Romania, Slovakia, Finland, Croatia), which began with the invasion of Soviet territory and ended with the liberation of Central and Eastern European countries from fascism; a major part of World War II, which ended with the victory of the Red Army and the unconditional surrender of the German armed forces. In Western countries it is referred to as the "Eastern Front", in Germany - also as the "German-Soviet War".
War is a conflict between political entities - states, tribes, political groups, and so on - occurring on the basis of various claims, in the form of armed confrontation, military (combat) actions between their armed forces.
As a rule, war is a means of imposing one's will on the enemy. When one subject of politics tries to change the behavior of another by force, to force him to give up his freedom, ideology, property rights, to give up resources: territory, water area and more.
"War is the continuation of politics by other, violent means" - so said Karl Philipp Gottlieb von Clausewitz
There is a term - poets-veterans. This is a generalized term that is applied to young Soviet poets who spent their youth in the battles of World War II and whose poems well reflect the atmosphere of the front.
Some died at the front, others lived longer, but many, as predicted by Semyon Gudzenko (Semyon Petrovich Gudzenko - Russian Soviet poet and journalist, war correspondent.,) did not die of old age:
"We will not die of old age,
we will die of old wounds."
