"Exhaustively researched and convincingly presented, Di Nardo's pathbreaking study of Gorlice-Tarnow is indispensable for anyone seeking to understand the Russian theater of the Great War." -- Dennis Showalter, Author of Tannenberg: Clash of Empires "The eastern front in the Great War 1914-18 is forgotten no more. Richard DiNardo offers the first analysis in three decades of that titanic struggle by concentrating on the breakthrough battle of Gorlice-Tarnow in May 1915. It is a great read. By exploiting the German Federal Military Archive and the Bavarian Military Archive, DiNardo penetrates what he calls the 'kaleidoscopic complexity of World War I at the strategic, operational and tactical levels.' It is a study of command, control, and communications. It is military history at its finest. It is a must read for military 'buff" and professional alike." -- Holger H. Herwig, Author of The Marne, 1914 "Breakthrough: The Gorlice-Tarnow Campaign, 1915 takes a crucial step in filling the deep gap that has existed in study of the Eastern front in the First World War as Richard DiNardo provides a captivating and meticulously researched manuscript on the Central Powers' greatest victory during the war. With his thorough examination of both Austro-Hungarian and German sources, DiNardo provides a comprehensive analysis of a monumental battle on this decisive, yet often forgotten, front. It is a much-needed addition to the sparse history that currently exists on the great Eastern front struggles." -- Graydon A. Tunstall, Author of Blood on the Snow: The Carpathian Winter War of 1915 "An impressive book that not only adds considerably to our understanding of a crucially important campaign in World War I but also reveals the kaleidoscopic complexity of the war itself." -- Robert A. Doughty , Brigadier General (USA, Retired), and Author of Pyrrhic Victory: French Strategy and Operations in the Great War
