Carl Bardolff
Carl Bardolff began the war ranked Oberst and was in command of the 29. infantry brigade, part of Feldmarschalleutnant Friedrich von Wodniansky's 15. infantry division in the VI. Corps of General Svetozar von Boroevic. After this, Bardolff was chief of staff to General Eduard von Böhm-Ermolli and the II. Army in 1915.  In March 1918, FML Bardolff succeeded FML Ludwig Goiginger as leader of the 60. Infantry Division.  He maintained this responsibility until August 1918, when he turned the reins of the division over to GM Josef Pacor von Karstenfels und Hegyalja.

Following the armistice, Bardolff worked with the Austrian Republic's successor army, the Bundesheer.  From WWI, Bardolff became a prolific writer on all types of military topics, including "Soldat im alten Österreich" (Jena, 1938) and "Der Deutschösterreiches Soldat im Weltkrieg" (Vienna, 1934).
