Yesterday alone, the Germans lost 1600 trpops and 68 tanks in futile efforts- to advance, some 70 miles below Lwow. Tlie battle appears to be taking on some aspects of the struggle In the Kieve salient last fall. At that time, the Germans threw powerful armored forces against the Russians to force the Red Army lo withdraw across the Dnestr. After repulsing the early attacks, tbe Soviets tlid pull back, but only to draw the Nazis in front of well- prepared. Russian defenses which broke the back of the German assault.
