June 14th, 1915

- Overnight the Russian 8th Army pulls back eastward in Galicia, retreating to a second defensive line that had been prepared prior to the resumption of the German offensive yesterday.  When the German 11th Army comes up against the new Russian entrenchments, hard fighting ensues; despite the heavy casualties already suffered by the Russians, they retain the ability to fight tenaciously on the defensive.  Only the Guard Corps and XXII Reserve Corps in the centre are able to push through this new line by evening, and everywhere 11th Army fails to reach the objectives for today set by Mackensen.
