BLOOD ON THE SNOW
by Graydon A Tunstall

The Carpathian winter campaign of 1915, described by some as the “Stalingrad of the First World War”, drove the million-man armies of Austria-Hungary and Russia to the brink of annihilation. Habsburg forces fought to rescue 130,000 Austro-Hungarian troops trapped by the Russians in Fortress Przemysl, but the campaign produced six times as many casualties as the number besieged. It remains one of the least understood and most devastating chapters of the war. Tunstall shows that the roots of the Habsburg collapse in Russia in 1916 lay squarely in the winter campaign of 1915.

WRITTEN IN BLOOD: THE BATTLES FOR FORTRESS PRZEMYSL IN WWI
by Graydon A Tunstall

The battles for Fortress Przemysl were pivotal to victory on the Eastern Front during the early years of World War I. Control of the fortress changed hands three times during the fall of 1914. In 1915, the Austro-Hungarian armies launched three major offensives to penetrate the Russian encirclement and relieve the 120,000 trapped in the besieged fortress. The author describes the dreadful conditions facing the garrison: starvation, "horse-meat" diets, deplorable medical care, prostitution, alcoholism, dismal morale, and a failed breakout attempt. By the time the fortress finally fell to the Russians on March 22, 1915, the Hapsburg Army had sustained 800,000 casualties; the Russians, over a million.
