Military Culture and Popular Patriotism in Late Imperial Austria

(p.1) Introduction
Military Culture and Popular Patriotism in Late Imperial Austria

Laurence Cole

Oxford University Press

Defining ‘military culture’ not as the organizational culture pertaining to the army as an institution, but as a way of understanding the historical importance of the military in Austrian society and culture, the chapter emphasizes the need for a new military history of the Habsburg Monarchy. In discussing existing research, the introduction argues for a greater appreciation of the social, cultural, and political impact of the military in late imperial Austria, before concluding with a discussion of militarism and processes of societal militarization. It further provides an outline of the main themes and subject matter of the book.

Keywords:   Habsburg army, new military history, patriotism, militarism, military culture
