Army of General Rudolf Brudermann. His division suffered almost total destruction on the Gnila Lipa in early September 1914.

Edmund von Zaremba's family is an ancient and noble clan of Poland.  Although it was extremely prolific and numerous branches succeeded in losing the noble heritage, the family was well-known as a majour political force in pre-partitioned Poland.  As a result of the partitions, there were Zarembas in the armies of Austria-Hungary, Germany, and Russia during World War I.
