*The Siege of Przemyśl- Przemyśl was a fortress town on the San River held by Austro-Hungarian troops. The Russians began attacking the stronghold on September 24th 1914 and at first accomplished very little while suffering heavy losses. The Russians however relentlessly held the siege and eventually acquired proper artillery to attack the forts. Though the Austro-Hungarians were able to hold out for 133 days they were eventually forced to surrender. This was the longest siege of the First World War
