    I’m just waiting for the war when Poland denounces the Chinese – the best let it be 4 War! Because then Chinese will pass through the Russian 8 times – WielkaPolska 1610!

    “Russians are teaching German war prisoners to dance, Eastern front, Russia, 1915″
    They should have known better. Everyone knows the German is incapable of dance.

    It’s unfortunate that the Western front of WW1 gets the most attention in the history books! Very interesting post.

    Interesting note: Ruzhan (pl. Różan) fortress now houses Poland’s only nuclear waste storage.

    Nice photos, maybe a few pictures of Przemysl next time?

    “Russian soldiers with a howitzer on the wooden raft, Russia, 1915″ This photo is marked incorrectly. It should state “DECOY Russian Soldiers” as the howitzer and the men are all scarecrows…a common tactic to draw either cavalry or infantry into a fight.

    You have made a number of errors in several places:
    Apparently “Tilzit” is back-translitrated from the German spelling “Tilsit”. Also Under this Name, it was a German town (until ’45), not a Russian one

    The photo subtitled “German troops are entering Warsaw, 1915″ has a German inscription reading “Warsaw shortly before being captured by German troops. A Russian fortification battalion is leaving Warsaw”
