landwehr.flag24th June, 1915 : Fortunes change rapidly in the great campaign of the Eastern Front and the Austrians have retaken Lemberg, the capital of Galicia, which they lost to Russians last year. According to a communique issued in Vienna, General Boehm-Ermolli entered the town with the troops of the Second Army. The Russian retreat was accomplished by men of the Vienna Landwehr who, in some bloody fighting, captured the town of Rzezna and rendered Lemberg untenable. While the Russians are playing down the significance of this debacle, there can be no doubt that it will boost the morale of the Austro-Hungarians.
