Eastern Front; the Battle of Łódź concludes inconclusively, with “both sides having achieved their most important objectives”. The Russians have “repulsed the Germans and saved Warsaw” and the Germans have “caused the Russians to abandon their offensive into Silesia… Casualties and losses: Russian Empire: 110 000 killed, wounded or captured, German Empire: 160 000 killed, wounded or captured” [Wikipedia].
