    Title: The German Army in the First World War: Uniforms and Equipment, 1914 to 1918
    Author: Jürgen Kraus
    Publisher: Verlag Militaria
    Year: 2006
    Language: English & German
    ISBN: 978-3-9501642-6-8 (English)
    ISBN: 978-3-9501642-5-1 (German)
    Hardcover with Dust Jacket: 640 pages

    Notes: This illustrated, 640 page volume presents, for the first time, a comprehensive picture of the uniforms and equipment of the German army in the First World War. More than 1,400 magnificent colour photographs illustrate the full range of clothing and insignia, from lowly private to lofty field marshal. This book includes not only detailed descriptions of all the garments worn in the German army during the war, but also of the special uniforms and insignia of each branch of service. This fascinating collection of photographs of original pieces is supplemented by 400 contemporary wartime photographs showing clearly how they were actually worn. Together, they illustrate the external changes in the German army between 1914 and the end of the war. The collection of the Bayerisches Armeemuseum in Ingolstadt was photographed for the first time for this book, along with some important artefacts from the Wehrgeschichtliches Museum in Rastatt. Despite the camouflage function of the field-grey uniform, it still reflected the structure of the German army in the various contingents and branches of service.

    Title: Storm Troops: Austro-Hungarian Assault Units and Commandos in the First World War Tactics, Organisation, Uniforms and Equipment
    Author: M. Christian Ortner
    Publisher: Verlag Militaria
    Year: 2012
    Language: English
    ISBN-10: 3950164286
    ISBN-13: 978-3950164282
    Hardcover/Paperback: 320 pages

    Notes: The assault troops ranked among the elite units of the Austro-Hungarian army and permanently influenced the image of the soldier in the static and trench warfare of the First World War. In trench warfare, they had the assignment to remove enemy obstacles and to eliminate sentries in hand-to-hand combat with hand grenades or with daggers and clubs, thus enabling following attacking troops to reach their objectives. Equipped with steel helmets, shortened rifles and hand grenades, supported by machine guns, submachine guns and infantry guns, the assault trooper of the First World War ultimately epitomized the ‘modern’ soldier of the twentieth century. This impressive and lavishly illustrated volume comprises 320 pages and shows the operational tactics, battle doctrine, organization, uniforms and equipment of the Austrian assault troops in the First World War in more than 850 contemporary black and white and current full color photographs. Clear views of submachine guns, machine guns, trench mortars, infantry guns, flamethrowers and signals equipment provide an impressive overview of the arms and equipment of the elite of the k.u.k. army. These rare artifacts were mainly drawn from the inventory of the Heeresgeschichtliches Museum Vienna. The book devotes a long chapter to Austrian assault troop badges. It shows not only their genesis, but also illustrates more than 100 assault troop badges as originals and on photographs of their wearers. 850 Photos

    Title: The Austro-Hungarian Army in the First World War. Uniforms & Equipment - from 1914 to 1918 (2 Volumes in a slip cover)
    Author: M. Christian Ortner and Prof. DI Hermann Hinterstoisser
    Publisher: Verlag Militaria
    Year: 2013
    Language: English (Available in German as well)
    ISBN-10: 3902526645
    ISBN-13: 978-3902526649
    Hardcover with slip cover: 864 pages

    Notes: More than 2500 colour photographs, contemporary BW-photographs and illustrations, bound in linen with a protective cover.

    Volume 1 focuses on the Army caught in the field of tension created by the dualism of 1867 to 1914 and the development of field uniforms before 1914. The pike grey field uniforms introduced for the k.k. Landwehr in 1907 and for the joint Army and the Landwehr in 1908 and the peculiarities of the cavalry, still dressed in their colorful uniforms at the beginning of the war, are dealt with in extensive chapters. These are followed by chapters on the field grey uniforms of 1915 in their various forms, wartime economy at a time when materials were becoming increasingly scarce, rank insignia and unit badges. It has also been possible to include photographs of the original official samples for many items of uniform.

    Volume 2 deals with the personal items of equipment carried by the soldiers and the uniforms of special formations such as the motorized and aviation troops, tropical uniforms, field pastors and military bands, medical personnel and voluntary formations and legions. Belts, haversacks, canteens, knapsacks and gasmasks are all illustrated and described in detail. Photographs of the clothes worn by prisoners of war and the uniforms of the Volkswehr at the turn of 1919 are published here for the first time, completing this portrayal of the uniforms of the old Austro-Hungarian Army. One whole section is devoted to the Heir Apparent, Franz Ferdinand, and his assassination in Sarajevo. Eyewitness accounts describe the dramatic sequence of events on 28 June 1914. The uniform that Franz Ferdinand was wearing on the fateful day, which has been displayed in a glass case at the Heeresgeschichtliches Museum in Vienna since 1914, has been carefully photographed for this book, bearing witness to the tragic event that plunged the world into war in 1914.
