It is oon : ceded that the Germans have won a ''morel victory," but the elretegle im portance of the fortress, according to the opinion axpreeeed here, bad been nullt ' f fed before the . Ruaelane relinquished it A leading Ruaalan military expert, analyalslng the situation, says: "Hav i Ing crosaex the Ran rtvor with twe ar mlea. which began operations against the fortress, the Germans found them ' aelvee In aa extremely danreroue and imstable position; being attacked en their ' left flank they were compelled to shorten the atrip ef ground they occupied on the ' right of the flan. A reverse to theee armies would have turned the German movement into a catastrophe, sinoe re ' treat to the rear would have been cut off by the Hen river and the preasure ef the Ruaalan forces at Siena we on the German left. Accordingly the Oermane ' were forced to hurl their attack eaalnat the fortreaa, throwing forward enormous foreee. "The indefensibility of the fortreaa was due to the fact that the Auatrlane had ' blowit up the most important forte upon their evacuation of Prsemysl, coupled with the configuration ef the land. This was unsuitable to a stubborn defense for the reason that tts 'undulations made it possible for the enemy te hide their approaches. , '.'

Rustle's long range rues, tha expert ays, shooting te the last shell into the thick masees of advancing Austro-Ger mans, caused ' them severe losses. Kventually, however, the Ruaataa nun tary authorities reached the decision to ramov the amy from the fortlftcatlon. "Stragetlo considerations," the expert concludes, "led te this same deolalon. since the Prsemyal army constituted a aharp ' wedge, cutiUg Into the Oerman lines and subject to being attacked from every aide. To defend thla orescent-shaped front required tremendous forces,' a red it was clearly the desire of the Germans that numerous forces be diverted te this front for defensive purposes. ."It la astUnaied that the proper defease of the Prsemysl fortreae would have re lulred the concentration there of forces equal te those ef the former Austrian garrison, namely tf.000 men. It would have been aereeeary also to develop to their fulleat capacity ne lees than 1.60ft guns and to re-etabllih all the deatreyed forts, which in the i.i time available was Impossible. Strateate la porta a ea last "The abandonment of the blood-con- rered fortreaa certainly Is a sad blow, but it la necessary to remember that Prsemysl. twice snnihllattd, once by the Auauiana, once by us, haa today ne more importance then any other large city In Ualicla. If in February the German occu pation had little Influence on our meneti yerina, la the future It will play no role at all.
