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.
