Book Description

28 July 1999 Men-at-arms (Book 329)
The huge, multi-national Austro-Hungarian army was a major factor in mid-19th century European politics. Sharing borders with ramshackle Ottoman Turkey and volatile Italy, the Empire was threatened both internally - by growing nationalist esentments - and externally by the ambitions of France and Prussia. The Imperial and Royal Army was representative of the Empire, its composition and gorgeously complex uniforms echoing the historical traditions of both German-speaking Middle Europe and the East-facing Hungarian borderlands. This detailed analysis of its cavalry arm - Kurassiers, Dragoons, Chevauxlegers, Hussars and Uhlans - follows the author/artist's similar treatment of the Austro-Hungarian infantry in Men-at-Arms 323, and includes detailed tables of regimental distinctions.

I'm using the book because i am searching for pictures of an item my great great...grandmother picked up in the war between Denamark and Preussia and Austria-Hungary in 1864. It has helped me a step on the way.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little disappointed..... 14 May 2010
By J&K - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A typical Osprey offering with a wealth of information on Austrian uniforms. What I found troublesome is the text and plates only superficially covered some important areas. For example you get one useful plate on the 1859 Italian Campaign and not a lot of text. Given the overall lack of coverage of these large and important armies this IS better than nothing and is useful but far from in depth. Just wish it could have been further divided into two volumes with more detailed information present on the wartime forces.

The plates are well drawn - you get 3 plates covering the army in 1840 which was not at war - being of limited use for wargamers/hobbyists looking to cover the Franco-Austrian..Denmark Campaign or the Austro-Prussian Wars. 2 Plates cover 1848 which was a time of rebellion but not well known campaigns. 1 Plate Covering 1855 - again with not much going on. 1 Plate for the 1859 campaigns. 1 Plate for the 1865 period just after the War with Denmark and 1 plate for the Austro-Prussian War of 1866.

In summary - well drawn plates. Reasonably detailed text on uniforms - you get ZERO military or political history here but far to large a focus on the peactime forces to be really useful for the main audience.

4.0 out of 5 stars Uniforms and weapons of The Austrian Empire Army 18 Sep 2001
By Eduardo J. Tellez A - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In the 19 century Austria find a lot of problems with their multi-ethnic Empire and with their neighbors, Austria was one of the major powers in the era of the revolutions and was not
out of content when it refers to his army, in this first great work from Darko Pavlovic we start with the infantry, weapons and uniforms are the major points of this book, a small map would help us understand the problems with their borders and why was important to have a well prepare and trained army ready for any campaigns, photos of the time would make us see with more precision the weapons and uniforms without forgetting the 8 Uniforms plates by the author, remember this is the first part there is also the Calvary from the same author which also is a great work.

Where else is anyone going to get the information provided in this book? Admittedly, it is an obscure war that took place a year after the end of the US Civil War, but it had important implications for politics in Europe. I know of no other publication in English that would offer the breadth of information supplied by this volume. Definitely one of the best Osprey titles.
