Battle of Tannenberg

A pivotal battle in the East fought August 26-30, 1914, the Battle of Tannenberg resulted in the near destruction of two Russian armies during a series of clashes as German forces utilized rail transportation to move rapidly and engage the Russians at several locations. The decisive German victory made a national hero of Field Marshal Paul von Hindenburg and seized the initiative on the Eastern Front from the Russians.
