This 500-page book filled with color illustrations presents, for the first time, a detailed and systematic view of the uniforms and equipment of the Austro-Hungarian army during the First World War. Over 1200 color illustrations, some of objects never shown before; from the personal uniform of Kaiser Franz Joseph I to the field grey regulation wear of the lowly common soldier. From the golden Dragoon's helmet to the dull, brown steel helmet of the Isonzo front. 250 contemporary photographs give a vivid impression of how soldiers in the Austro-Hungarian army looked wearing "The Emperor's Coat" during World War I. This book depicts a changing army, its soldiers marching into battle in 1914 in brightly colored parade uniforms and returning home defeated (by the Italians, no less) in 1918 in worn-out field grey uniforms. The individual objects illustrated in the book are photographed in detail from several perspectives. A highly detailed and scholarly reference. New. S&H-$10.50
