In 1709, Charles Xlf, of Sweden, made a great attaok on Russia" getting as far as Poltava, when his invading army absolutely coiiapaed. Then 10S ypars later the Great Napoleon, in 1812, made bis great attack on Russia getting as far as Moscow with the best part of an army of a million men. Hβ came back after his disastrous campaign with less than 20,000 ragged, starved troops. In 1915, "William The Murderer," makes his great attack on KußPia. The question is will history repeat itself?
