Contemporary accounts of the Russian army's campaigns on the Eastern Front during the Great War are few and far between. "Field Notes from the Russian Front" contains an extensive series of dispatches penned by the Times newspaper's 'special correspondent', American Stanley Washburn, whilst he was attached to the Tsar's army. The accounts focus on the Russian army during the autumn of 1914 and the winter of 1914/15, including the assault on Lemberg, the conquest of Galicia, Warsaw, and the two German invasions of Poland. The author's style is never less than lively and personal, although he is always careful to describe the wider context in which the events he was witnessing occurred. He frequently found himself virtually on the front line, and his descriptions of a number of the Eastern Front battlefields are outstanding. The text is accompanied by over 50 photographs. 2 further volumes of Eastern Front recollections were penned by Mr Washburn, and it is our intention to add these to the Library of the Great War at a later date.
