The well-respected historian Manfried Rauchensteiner analyses the outbreak of
World War I, Emperor Franz Joseph’s role in the conflict, and how the various
nationalities of the Habsburg Monarchy reacted to the disintegration of this 640-yearold
empire in 1918. After Archduke Franz Ferdinand"s assassination in Sarajevo in 1914,
war was inevitable. Emperor Franz Joseph intended it, and everyone in Vienna expected
it. How the war began and how Austria-Hungary managed to avoid capitulation only
weeks later with the help of German troops reads like a thriller. Manfried Rauchensteiner"s
book is based on decades of research and is a fascinating read to the very end,
even though the final outcome, the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian Dual Monarchy, is
already known. Originally published in German in 2013 by Böhlau, this standard work
is now available in English.
