Die Wehrmacht der Monarchie im Weltkrieg 1914
Moderne Ilustrierte Zeitung, 15 May-1 June 1914.
Obviously gathered as a book after the outbreak of the war. Heavily illustrated,
and documents the entire Austrian military as of June, 1914 in a special edition
of the publication. That it was published in May and June shows that Austria was
definitely ready for a war before the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand
in Bosnia. In German and heavily illustrated.
