On 31st May the fortress fell, and at 3.30 on the morning of 2nd June von Mackensen entered the city.
Meanwhile, Mackensen in Dobrudja was showing extreme activity.
Five days later Mackensen cut the southern line between Lublin and Cholm, and the sides of the triangle were fast closing in.
The mightiest efforts of Mackensen's forces were unable to check him.
When Mackensen left there remained in Rumania only fifty locomotives out of the twelve hundred which she possessed before the war.
This line had been Mackensen's objective from the beginning.
Mackensen is said to be in Servia and pushing south rapidly.
Mackensen had crossed the Danube on the 7th and taken Belgrade on the 9th.
The capture of Przemysl was a great feather in von Mackensen's cap, but it was no great prize.
They seem not to be aware that Mackensen has Zeppelins in Bulgaria.
