Pershing Lecture Series: Austria at War in 1914

Tuesday, Sept. 6 - 6:30 p.m. Auditorium and YouTube Live

When the Austro-Hungarian Empire went to war in the summer of 1914, both friends and foes viewed it as one of the great powers of Europe. A series of military disasters undermined this view within four months, establishing the Dual Monarchy as just a supporting actor of the Central Powers and beginning the empire's steady descent into dissolution. Dr. Richard Faulkner examines the Austro-Hungarian Army and the factors leading to its uneven performance in the opening months of the Great War. In conjunction with the exhibition Empires at War.
