The Brusilov Offensive was the main offensive operation of the Russian Army on the Eastern Front in 1916. The offensive is named after the Russian general who planned the attack. The attack was aimed at Austro-Hungarian positions and it was very successful at first. In the end, Russian delays during the summer, combined with German reinforcements and Romania's entry into the war forced Brusilov to suspend offensive operations.
