Military Veterans in Trieste and the Littoral

(p.217) 5 For Emperor and Fatherland
Military Culture and Popular Patriotism in Late Imperial Austria

Oxford University Press

This chapter complements the previous chapter by looking at other regions of the Habsburg Monarchy with a significant Italian-speaking presence. It concentrates on the activities of military veterans in the port city of Trieste, as well as surveying developments in other parts of the Austrian Littoral, namely the princely county of Görz and Gradisca, and the peninsula of Istria. Here, social and ethnic fault-lines were exacerbated by contestation over military culture. Particular tensions arose in certain towns with a strong army or navy presence, where ethnic politics took on anti-militarist dimensions.

Keywords:   military veterans, Trieste, Littoral, Habsburg army, politicization, nationalism
