You can see that attacker lost 3 and defender lost 2...

Perhaps a <Success> tag?
Also - you need to know how many armies were advanced into the space.
The last - and probably most valid point...
This is all well and good - for "auto attacks" - but the normal attack button will spawn a multitude of these logs - is the server meant to condense these into one?

For example, someone is attacking Alaska from Kamchatka and rolls until the attacker loses 5 and the defender loses 7. Then they decide to attack Alaska from Alberta. They change the "from" drop-down to Alberta, and when that changes, if there were changes in army numbers, the changes are posted.
