Anyone interested in the specific kuk military should check out "Beyond Nationalism: A social and political history of the Habsburg Officer Corps 1848-1918" by Istvan Deak.

F. Morton, A Nervous Splendor. Archduke Rudolf, Maria Vetsera, the Emperor, family politics and also Austro-Hungarian politics.

Any other opinions about this book from forum members? Morton seems to attract a lot of critics.

I'm interested in pre-WWI Austria-Hungary.

USA schools barely mention A-H. can't find many books about either.

But there are some which are in English and which I would recommend:

G. Rothenburg, The Army of Francis Joseph. (1976/1998)
Istvàn Deàk, Beyond Nationalism. A Social History of the Habsburg Officer Corps.
