While millions of men died in France and Belgium in 1915, battles equally as large and bloody were being fought on the Eastern Front, as Imperial Germany, Hapsburg Austria-Hungary, and Tsarist Russia clashed on a scale greater than anything seen on the Western Front. These massive offensives were shocking in their scale and intensity, and hugely important. Yet they are largely ignored in the West. Now, with the work of internationally renowned Eastern Front expert Prit Buttar, this story of the unknown side of World War I is finally being told. In Germany Ascendant, Buttar examines the critical year of 1915, when Germany launched the great Gorlice-Tarnow Offensive, lead by Field Marshal Mackensen. The move, which started as a minor German operation to relieve their Austro-Hungarian allies, ultimately resulted in the utter collapse of Russian forces from all of Poland and Gallacia, and came tantalizingly close to knocking Russia out of the war altogether. Next the Germans led the invasion of Serbia, leading Britain and France to intervene with ground troops, an operation that ultimately failed. Yet despite this unbroken string of successes, Germany was still hamstrung by a two-front war. Her every attempt to knock Russia out of the war--military and diplomatic--has failed. The stage was then set for the next phase of the war when Russia launched its own counter-offensive that nearly brought the Central Powers to their knees.… (més)

The Eastern Front in World War One is often overlooked in favour of the Western Front, at least if you are British. Tannenberg is fairly well known, but aside from that only really the Brusilov Offensive of 1916 and the Revolution of 1917 make much of an impression.

As a result of this ignorance, [a:Prit Buttar's|4098424|Prit Buttar|https://s.gr-assets.com/assets/nophoto/user/u_50x66-632230dc9882b4352d753eedf9396530.png] four volume history of the war on the Eastern Front, of which this is the second, is to be welcomed. [b:Collision of Empires|22856398|Collision of Empires The War on the Eastern Front in 1914|Prit Buttar|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1408937330s/22856398.jpg|26230643] was excellent but this, because it deals with less well known events, is even better. 1915 was the year the Russians were almost knocked out of the war, when Mackensen made a name for himself as a general, when the Russian army recovered from the catastrophes of early summer well enough to thrash the Austro-Hungarian army late in the season, and when Serbia was finally crushed.

I look forward to the remaining two volumes of this excellent endeavour. ( )
