The Leadership in Austria-Hungary during WWI


Legionaries and Revolutionaries

These are men who had objectives beyond victory for Austria-Hungary. Some, like the Polish Legions, fought for years under the command of the k.u.k. Army, hoping for victory and a reborn Polish state. Others were politicians who wanted a total reform of the government while retaining the existence of the Empire. Only a few plotted the overthrow of the Empire, and the idea did not gain momentum until late in the war.
