The Eastern Front (Russian: Восточный фронт) was a theater of operations of World War I in the east and center of Europe.

1914: Opening moves

As war began across Europe following the assassination of in Sarajevo, the German Empire declared war on the Russian Empire, on 1 August 1914. Austria-Hungary did the same, and operations soon began. The Russian Stavka (high command) ordered a general offensive. The East Prussian Offensive began in mid August. Several early skirmishes saw Russian forces prevail over the defending German Eighth Army, culiminating at the Battle of Tannenberg. At Tannenberg, the Russian Second Army defeated the Eighth Army and gave it heavy casualties, resulting in the Germans being forced to leave East Prussia by 1 September. The first major operation on the Eastern Front was a success.
