A brief description of the siege of Przmesyl

Recommended Posts

I want to know a bit more about the role of the hungarian units during this battle, especially about the ones composed in a large portion from transylvanians, such as the 23rd Honveds frim Hermenstadt. Were they fighting bravely or desserted to the russians? More than that, how did they perform at Przmesyl?

The Hungarian soldiers in the besieged fortress served well .at the same level of the Germans. General Kusmanek the Austrian commandant during the negotiations for the capitulation solicited the free retreat of his soldiers to Hungary. that was not granted .in Budapest exists a conmemorative monument of the defence of the fortress.
