The centennial of the start of the “Great War”, that is, World War I, took place last year, but the academic and informative events held to commemorate the war continue on, as the anniversaries of the individual milestones associated with the 4-year conflagration occur. And so it is that on September 22 – 23rd, 2015, the events of 1915 come under the microscope at a Prague conference cosponsored by the Czech Ministry of Defense and the Military History Institute Prague. The conference, titled 1915 – New Enemies, New Challenges, has invited numerous presenters representing nine different nations (the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Austria, Germany, Slovenia, Italy, the United States and Hungary) for an exchange of ideas.
Among those invited is our own Dávid Ligeti, Research Fellow of the Era of the Dual Monarchy Research Team, who will give a presentation titled Breakthrough at Gorlice. Consequences, Aftermath.
