In the Shadow of the West

The German Conduct of War on the Eastern Front up to the End of 1915

The Forgotten Front

Gerhard P. Gross

University Press of Kentucky

Gerhard P. Gross discusses the war on the eastern front, showing that the German military’s operational conduct in the east corresponded to the strategy of the overall leadership. In addition, the chapter points to the tensions between the Army High Command (OHL) and the commander in chief of the combined German military in the east. The war in the east, in contrast to the west, was conducted as a mobile war in many areas, and this chapter cites some essential differences between the western and eastern fronts in tactics and operations.

Keywords:   eastern front, 1914–1915, leadership, mobile war, OHL, operations, strategy, tactics, western front, 1914–1915
