German term or phrase: Rückführung der Entsendungen der beiden anderen Armeen
This is from a 1931 German history book:

Am 24. wurden die Vorschläge der Armee-Abteilung Gaede4) genehmigt und damit die Rückführung der Entsendungen der beiden anderen Armeen bis auf weiteres verschoben.

I have translated the above sentence as follows:

On the 24th, the proposals of Armee-Abteilung Gaede were approved and with that the return of the elements of both other armies was postponed until further notice.

Is this correct?

Hope this helps!
