"General Battle with Austrians in Galicia.
A Skirmish at Podgaitzev", lithographic print, August - September 1914. Medium size: measures 22 " x 16 ". No printer's or censor's inscriptions but there is a "No 11" appearing at the bottom of the image.

This battle scene has something for all students of the First World War. The flag and the bugler alone give it something that many early prints never include!

The text portion at the bottom reads "Our troops' offensive against the Austrians in Galicia started and continued with great success. The Russian army is heading east to west in the direction from

A Skirmish at Podgaitzev", lithographic print, August - September 1914. Medium size: measures 22 " x 16 ". No printer's or censor's inscriptions but there is a "No 11" appearing at the bottom of the image.

This battle scene has something for all students of the First World War. The flag and the bugler alone give it something that many early prints never include!

The text portion at the bottom reads "Our troops' offensive against the Austrians in Galicia started and continued with great success. The Russian army is heading east to west in the direction from Voloshisk via Tarnopol to Lvov, and from north to south from the Lublin District. According to the Headquarters of the Supreme Commander, the enemy lost 3000 men in the fight near Podgaitsev. We captured 4 artillery pieces and many caissons, another 9 artillery pieces and 60 caissons abandoned by the enemy were picked up at the Zolotaya Lipa river crossing. We captured 1000 POWs near Tomashov, while to the east of Tomashov an entire Hungarian division is destroyed and surrounded. The enemy is surrendering by entire regiments."

The condition is very good. The colors are still fresh. There is only the slightest suggestion of crumpling or minor tears on the outer edges. Nothing interferes with the text or title. There are two very tiny holes in the image area; they are so small that we never noticed them until one day when we held this print up to the light to admire it. Frankly, while many hundred year old prints require an involved conversation between the print owner and his framer before work begins, this print is unique in that it really doesn't need much by way of special handling.

This is a very fine example of a First World War patriotic print from Russia. If you were going to own and frame just one image from the Great War, this would be it.
