“The following morning the engineer battalion, which had been reinforced by infantry units during the night, resumed its
attack on the inner line. Hardly a single heavy weapon was encountered. Yet, even in this hopeless situation, the Russian
riflemen resisted so fiercely that the Germans had to take the positions and connecting trenches one by one. The
Russians continued to fire until their ammunition was expended; hardly a man was captured who had not been hit. By
noon the engineer battalion was able to enter Goldap, but it was evening before the town was finally mopped up.”
