March 21st, 1915

- At Przemysl, the high-ranking Austro-Hungarian commanders convene and decided that they will surrender to the Russians tomorrow; though rations remain for three days, negotiations over terms need to begin several days before they run out.  Further measures are also undertaken to destroy everything that might possibly be of military value to the Russians.  The railway station and rolling stock have been destroyed, and over the past two days all remaining horses have been slaughtered.  The military balloons at Przemysl also attempt to depart, but are all driven off course and land in Russian territory.
