About this Product

The part played in the Great War by the armies of the Austro-Hungarian Dual Monarchy is little known to English-speakers, perhaps because 1918 saw the complete destruction of the Empire. Yet it was of great importance, providing nearly all Central Powers forces on the Italian front, huge numbers on the Russian front, the Balkans and even a contingent in Turkey and Palestine. This second volume describes this complex organisation from the accession of Emperor Karl I in November 1916, through the victory of Caporetto and failure of the Piave offensive, to the final Armistice. The text is supported by tables and insignia charts, and illustrated with rare photographs and colourful plates.

Biographical Note

Dr PETER JUNG (1955-2003) obtained his Doctorate in History at the University of Vienna, and in 1981 began working for the Austrian State Archives/War Archives, where he subsequently became the head of three departments. He was a member of the Commission Autrichienne d'Histoire Militaire; and wrote a number of books and articles, including Die Feldverwendung der Österreichisch-Ungarischen Gendarmerie 1914/18 and L'ultimo Guerra degli Asburgo, Carso - Basso Isonzo - Trieste. The first part of this present study was published earlier this year as Men-at-Arms 392; Dr Jung died suddenly shortly after delivering this second book. Darko Pavlovic was born in 1959 and currently lives and works in Zagreb, Croatia. A trained architect, he now works as a full-time illustrator and writer, specialising in militaria. Darko has illustrated many books for Osprey Military since 1995: and has also written and illustrated titles for the Men-at-Arms series on the Austrian army of the 19th century.
