This is a 10 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on World War I - Key Battles - 1915 - Second Battle of Masurian Lakes. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Second Battle of the Masurian Lakes is also known as the Winter Battle of the Masurian Lakes, because it opened during a severe blizzard. The battle formed part of Paul von Hindenburg's plan for a 2 pronged decisive push against Russia by the Austro-Germans, the aim being to force Russia's defeat and so bring about an end to war on the Eastern Front.
Hindenburg intended to outflank Russian positions in central Poland, pushing them back beyond the Vistula River. Any further German progress eastwards was ended by an attack from the Russian 12th Army on February 22, directed against the German right flank.
German attacks further south, were far less productive than at the Masurian Lakes.
The presentation covers the following:
