The Leadership in Austria-Hungary during WWI


The Field Commanders, A-K

The following officers directed various contingents in the field during WWI. Some went on to desk jobs behind the lines, while one died while on the campaign. Some were dismissed after less than a month under difficult circumstances, while other retained commands for years and years. Most retired after the war to live more or less quiet lives in Vienna, attending the annual soldiers' conventions, or just writing memoires in order to "set the record straight.".
