The Russians plan to invade Germany from two directions at once, trapping the Germans in the middle. The Russians vastly outnumbered their foes, as the bulk of the German army is invading France at the onset of war. The Germans plan to conduct a fighting withdraw from East Prussia, but their commanding General panics.
