THE EMPEROR'S BOSNIAKS
Bosnia-Herzegovina was occupied by Austria-Hungary in 1878, annexed in 1908 and was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire until 1918. This book, illustrated in color, with 352 pages and nearly 600 photographs, presents a picture of the Bosnian soldiers in the Austro-Hungarian army and their military history under Austro-Hungarian administration.
The Bosniaks, who were seen as an elite group within the k.u.k. Army and who - with their strange uniform and fez headgear - attracted much attention from the various formations of the Austro-Hungarian Army, are the focus of the book. This richly-illustrated volume also offers a detailed view of the uniforms, equipment, and weaponry of the Bosniaks, from the formation of the Bosnian-Herzegovinian infantry and Jager troops to their first deployment in WWI. Also includes short bios.
This book is produced in co-operation with the Heeresgeschichtliches Museum Vienna, the Austrian Federal Armed Forces, the Army Museum Budapest, and private collectors.
