    The Battle of Festubert was part of a large-scale offensive led by the British Army in the Artois region of France. It was one of a series of attacks by the British First Army and the French Tenth Army, designed as a strategic attempt to exploit the diversion of German troops to the Russian front.

  • Austrians Launch “Punishment Expedition” Against Italy

    Since Italy declared war on Austria-Hungary last year fighting on the Italian front has followed a familiar pattern. Italian troops have staged a series of offensives in the Isonzo sector. All have been repulsed with heavy casualties, thanks to difficult terrain and the dogged resistance of the Austro-Hungarians.

    Until now the initiative has remained with the Italians, for all that they have not been able to do much with it. But Conrad, Austria-Hungary’s chief of staff, has been planning his own counter-stroke. His plan is to attack the Italians in the west, in the Trentino sector that until now has been relatively quiet. Conrad’s men are to storm the Asiago plateau and then press on to the coast, cutting off the entire Italian army along the Isonzo. This he hopes will force the Italians to quit the war.

  • Negotiations regarding the partition of the crumbling
    Ottoman Empire took place in 1915 among the British,
    French, and Russian Empires. This Triple Entente hoped
    to secure territory, trade routes, and oil within the
    former world power. Several attempts at partitioning the
    Ottoman Empire, including the Sykes-Picot Agreement
    and the Hussein-McMahon Correspondence, established
    the foundation for each empire’s sphere of influence.
    In addition to establishing security in the region, the
    Triple Entente was also keen on secret treaties and unfair
    agreements, which were aimed at cutting out their
    Hashemite allies. As the Ottoman Empire disintegrated
    towards the end of World War I, secret treaties among
    the Entente Powers and unfaithful negotiations with their
    Hashemite allies laid the groundwork for the political
    tensions in the contemporary Middle East.
