Examining the interplay between popular patriotism and military culture in late imperial Austria, this volume asks two key questions: how far did imperial Austrian society experience a process of militarisation comparable to that of other European countries; and how far did the military sphere foster popular patriotism in the multinational state?
Creating and displaying patriotism : military culture and dynastic self-representation in Habsburg Austria -- Embodying patriotism : Field Marshal Radetzky as military hero -- Popularizing patriotism : the organization of military veterans -- 'Good soldiers' : military veterans in Trentino -- For emperor and fatherland : military veterans in Trieste and the Littoral -- Patriotic action : the Imperial and Royal Austrian soldiers Corps -- Conclusion : Military culture and the limits of patriotic mobilization.
