The History Place - World War I

Austrian infantrymen target Russian troops during their winter campaign north of Przemysl in Galicia (southeastern Poland). Below: An adjacent Austrian field gun in rapid fire mode against the Russians. The Austrians were unable to sustain an effective offensive on their own. By the spring of 1915, after months of fighting the Russians alone, the Austrians found themselves in dire need of assistance from the Germans to regain lost ground.

Below: Six horses are needed to pull an Austrian army vehicle amid a lack of paved roads and muddy field conditions east of Krakow in Poland.
