1914 Galacia

Postby cj » 28 Jun 2006 23:53

Does anyone know anything about the Battles of Krasnik, Komarow and Limanova-Lapanov? I know they occured in 1914, Krasnik and Komarow were between the first and second encirclements of Przemysl, and Limanova-Lapanov was after the second encirclement but before the surrender. Thats all I really know about these important battles, so please help me out, I can't find anything.

I do not claim to be an expert, but have done a little research along these lines in the pursuit of information on the great Austrian poet Georg Trakl (1887-1914), who was a participant in some of these actions as a member of the Austro-Hungarian forces. He was mobilized out of Salzburg or Innsbruck, in mid-August, assigned to "Feldspital 7/14" [part of Gen Rudolf von Brudermann's Third Army; Brudermann replaced around 9/5 or 9/11 by the Croat general Boroevic] by early September, and between the 8th & 11th of that month near Grodek ...Trakl's movements were Grodek>Przemysl>Limanowa>Mosciska(?)>Wadowice>Cracau (where he perished)
Some good accounts are in Holger H. Herwig's FIRST WORLD WAR (1997), Norman Stone's THE EASTERN FRONT 1914-1917 (1975) Gunther Rothenburg's THE ARMY OF FRANCIS JOSEPH (1976), and two old texts, WITH THE AUSTRIAN ARMY IN GALICIA by Octavian C. Taslauanu (1918) --which is superb--and a good photographic record, NACH OSTEN by Sven Hedin (1916)
