Opis produktu:

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.

Contents
Military re-organisations, 1916 · Army & Navy air forces · Naval troops · Armoured troops · Uniforms · Representative campaigns - Russian front (Kerensky offensive), Balkans, Italian front (7th-12th battles of the Isonzo, Piave offensive), occupation of Ukraine · Austro-Hungarian troops on the Western Front
