Notes
This book is exactly what the title describes: it is therefore extremely valuable as a narrative written by an outsider. Volume 1 starts with the outbreak of war, preceded by a chapter describing the Russian Army of 1914, in some useful detail. It continues through 1914, including of course Knox's experiences with the Second Army of Samsonov, and the disaster which befell it. It then moves to his time with a cavalry division in South-West Poland in October 1914, then with the Ninth Army between October and December 1914 with Hindenburg's First Offensive against Warsaw. It then describes the Second Offensive just before the end of the year. He then moves on to the operations of the Tenth, Twelfth and First Armies between January and March 1915. He then describes the rear services and the internal situation in the Spring and Summer of 1915. Next comes the German Offensive on the Dunnajec and the retreat from Poland between April and August 1915, followed by the events on the Northern and Western Fronts from mid August to mid October 1915. Lastly he describes being with the Russian Delegation to the UK and France in the Autumn of 1915. This is one of N & M's facsimiles of the original publication; we cannot find details of this.
