Warsaw, one of the largest cities of the Russian Empire, and the principle city of Polish Russia, lies on the Vistula River. After the German-Austro-Hungarian breakthrough of the Gorlice-Tarnow Campaign, it was one of the greatest losses of the long Russian retreat through the summer and into the fall of 1915. Warsaw fell to the Germans on August 5, 1915.

Warsaw is a city in Russia.
