Russian Silesian Offensive by Rafail Sergeevich Levitsky.(1914) The Di Rocco Wieler Private Collection, Toronto, Canada

The Silesian Offensive was a Russian offensive in 1914, during the First World War.

It lasted from November 11 till December 6, and consisted of the battle of Łowicz and battle of Łódź.

While it marked the furthest Russian forces would ever get to the West during the war, it was a tactical Russian victory - but their strategic defeat.
