What is the talisman?

That scene in particular is kind of obvious, but it was what one soldier had used to get him through alive, safe and sound.  He gave it to one of the FNG's arriving downrange to keep him safe.  The action scenes that followed were not the greatest technical feats, kind of lame actually, but a pretty obvious and scary part of being where they were.  Never safe until you're home and some talismans are really sacred, you can't share them

sacred and powerful. And Lyutyi, the survivor will have to come to terms with it. :(

Thanks for helping me see this better.

The Paths of Glory from Kubrick.  Built like a Russian novel from the 19th century, depicting the highest levels of bureaucracy to foot soldier posts and guards going about their every day business on the ground.
