This particularly applies to. the eastern zone ot conflict where the tattle of the; campaign is fouglit in northeru Poland with a severity which betok-j ens-Hie gravity of the issue on which the combat hangs. Details of the fighting which has heen in progress in this quarter, up to date show tliat while the enemy's posi- tion was temporarily a very precarious pn'e, that of .the Russian forces was equally hazardous. The town of Lodz was closely invested on three sides by the enemy, and what' appear- ed i grave situation was turned into an eiiually grave one for the Germans who were outflanked. Here again the enemy in his turn saved himself. Evi- dently with heavy losses on either side the battle is being rvfought with the result sti.'l in -the balance.
