My sentence should have read.

The ill equipped Russians had met with a terrible defeat at Tannenburg

The Russians tried again and again after that battle in 1914. manpower they had, huge resources in men. Yes,I catch your train of thought. How many ifs are there to this day. The world still paying for the corporal, dispatch runner, holder of the iron cross. Later the Chancellor, Adolf Hitler.
