post holy moly Roman Empire, elephant train heavy lifting equipment
left over from Hannibal is unneeded for SS skiers to do in Österreich

which after the war victorious Allies land grabbed like Germany

then when Stalin croaked it’s declared to be a “neutral country”
thus avoiding descending Iron Curtain less than velvet gloves.
