July 24, 1917 – Central Powers Reconquer Territory Lost in Kerensky Offensive

The Austro-German army on the Eastern Front retook most of the territory they had lost in the Kerensky Offensive by late July. On the 24th, Central Powers troops recaptured the towns of Halich and Stanislau in Russian Poland (today the cities of Halicz and Stanislawow in Ukraine.) The Kaiser visited the Eastern Front to congratulate his generals, while reminding his Austrian allies who they depended on. Meanwhile, Allied leaders gathered for an emergency conference in Paris to discuss the growing possibility that Russia would be knocked out of the war.
