In some parts of the battle line the Aus

that they were compelled to abandon

cavalry which had got into the Austrian

The Russians charged over heaps of
dead foes. The most moderate estimate
of the enemy's losses is 15,0.0w)o, and some
estimates make It two-thirds greater. At
the minimum computation the Austrians
have lost at least a quarter of the total
force they had on this front.
