About the Author

Graydon A. Tunstall teaches history at the University of South Florida and is executive director of the Phi Alpha Theta history honour society. He is author of World War I and its Effects upon World History, Planning for War against Russia and Serbia: Austro-Hungarian and German Military Strategies, 1871-1914, and a forthcoming volume on Fortress Przemysl.


"With bold, powerful brush strokes, Tunstall paints a picture of horrendous death in the Carpathian Mountains. Austria-Hungary and Russia each lost about one million men, making the battle more costly than the better known ones of Verdun and the Somme 1916. Meticulously researched and well written, this is military history at its finest. A must read."--Holger H. Herwig, author of The Marne, 1914"Snow falls on the mountains, wolves howl in the distance, and two doomed armies learn the truth of the old adage, 'there is no enemy more formidable than nature.' An essential book for all World War I libraries."--Robert M. Citino, author of The German Way of War"A must read for anyone interested in the Great War's Eastern front."--Richard L. DiNardo, author of Breakthrough: The Gorlice-Tarnow Campaign, 1915
"Tunstall has done a brilliant job of researching and presenting a readable analysis of the nearly forgotten series of icy mountain battles that destroyed the Austro-Hungarian Army and fatally weakened the hapsburg monarchy."--Relevance: Quarterly Journal of the Great War Society"The book is a detailed case study, based on extensive primary source research, of an attempt to devise a viable strategy to meet drastically-changed, unforeseen conditions with impending crisis--and with an increasingly domineering ally."--Parameters"In giving a full account of the winter war, Tunstall has rendered a vital service to our understanding of World War I. This is a must book for experts and novices alike."--NYMAS Review, New York Military Affairs Symposium"Tunstall has done a brilliant job of researching and presenting a readable analysis."--Camaraderie: The Journal of the Western Front Association
