(p.120) Chapter Five Conscription
Venice and Venetia under the Habsburgs


Oxford University Press

This chapter examines another widely-disliked Habsburg institution: conscription into the army and navy. It analyses the debates that went on surrounding the introduction of an annual levy in Venetia, and contrasts the way in which the Austrian system operated with the fashion in which that of the Napoleonic Kingdom of Italy functioned. It argues that, while most Venetians still loathed conscription under the Austrians, and often went to great lengths to avoid it, military service was less irksome than under the French.
