In the last seventy years of its long and distinguished existence, the Habsburg monarchy was plagued by the forces of rising nationalism. Still, it preserved domestic peace and provided the conditions for social, economic, and cultural progress in a vast area inhabited by eleven major nationalities and almost as many confessional groups. This study investigates the social origin, education, training, code of honor, lifestyle, and political role of the Habsburg officers. Other readers will always be interested in your opinion of the books you've read. Whether you've loved the book or not, if you give your honest and detailed thoughts then people will find new books that are right for them. New York Oxford OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS 1990.
Simultaneously conservative and liberal, the officer corps, originally composed mainly of noblemen, willingly coopted thousands of commoners-among them an extraordinary number of Jews. Even during World War I, the army and its officers endured, surviving the dissolution of the state in October 1918, if only by a few days. The end of the multinational Habsburg army also marked the end of confessional and ethnic tolerance in Central and East Central Europe.
He then offers a concise history of the monarchy and of the role of the military within it down to the ascendancy of Franz Conrad von Hotzendorf. The long decades of peace between Koniggratz and the carnage on the Isonzo River were spent by the soldiers in garrison towns or on pacifi- cation campaigns in southern Dalmatia or Bosnia- Herzegovina.
Deak provides some background history and then discusses the army as it developed after the Revolutions of 1848, when a series of reforms produced the army that would fight the subsequent Hapsburg wars. The army saved the Hapsburg monarchy in 1848-1849, and its key role was to be police force of last resort for the remaining decades of the empire. Following the defeats by the French in 1958 and the Prussians in 1866, this was essentially the only role for the army until the outbreak of WWI, for which the Hapsburg army was not prepared particularly well . If nothing else, this book gives a good sense of the basic structure of the Habsburg Officer corps.

Istvan Deak examines the Habsburg officer corps and the way in which it became the foremost preserver of the multi-ethnic Austro-Hungarian empire from the mid-nineteeth century to the empire's defeat in 1918. The officer corps was an important cohesive force in the empire, for it created a unified and loyal army from recruits representing all the different nationalities and ethnic groups of Austro-Hungary
