In Chapter 6, the disastrous Carpathian winter war battle in early 1915 is described in detail including its significance and detailed description of some of the worst battlefield conditions ever witnessed in the history of warfare. Many soldiers succumbed to the “White Death,” or freezing to death. The point is made that the battle should never have been fought. The drawn-out negotiations with Italy and then the first four Isonzo River battles are presented. The great Central Power victory of Gorlice–Tarnow is described, followed by the disastrous Habsburg Rovno campaign. Finally, the chapter describes the German-commanded Serbian campaign and its repercussions for the Central Powers.
