How were battles on the eastern front different from battles on the western front?
Presuming this to be a WWII ETO question. A German soldier could surrender on the western front. He might perish if he tried that on the eastern front. The western front was fought by basically the same breed of men; the eastern front was a war between the Occidental/Westerner (Germans) and the Oriental/Easterner (Russians)...There was NO MERCY between those two!

How large were German losses on the eastern front?
It is generally accepted that of the total German military combat deaths in WWII, which numbered about 3.4 million, about 75% and possibly 80% were on the eastern front. Additionally, up to June 1944 (Normandy) the percentage was even higher since there was little combat elsewhere that generated large casualties. German material losses on the eastern front were also huge representing over 80% of artillery, tank and truck losses. Aircraft losses were about 50/50 on the eastern and western front. Of course, naval losses were almost exclusively in the west, even including defensive actions taken against Soviet attempts to massacre civilians on the open seas late in the war in the Baltic. It is said that, 9 out of 10 German soldiers killed in World War II were on the Eastern Front.
