|Extract (with a sketch map of Poland) from
a despatch by the military attaché in Warsaw, Alfred Knox,
to the British ambassador to Russia, George Buchanan, on the fighting
in Galicia, 3 November 1914.
Knox's despatch from Warsaw on 3 November 1914 was written after the
initial Russian advances in Galicia had been slowed by the arrival
of German reinforcements to support their Habsburg ally. In this extract,
Knox outlines in detail the German advance from the Bendin-Chenstokov
Line towards the River Vistula (see map) in early October and the
subsequent partially successful attempts of the Russian armies to
push back the enemy westwards.
