Battle of Tannenberg (1/10)

List item

Quite possibly the most lopsided and decisive battle of the entire conflict, the battle of Tannenberg dominated the Russian front in the war’s first month (August 1914) and would leave a scar on the Russian military that it never truly recovered from. Led by the famous duo generals Von Hindenburg and Ludendorff, the German army defeated the numerically superior Russians, inflicting a massive 170,000 casualties on their enemy and capturing countless amounts of valuable supplies.
