  1. The world needs more movies, shows, games, books, etc set in this. More documentaries and research needs to be made on this subject. In most tellings of WW1, it's like those 1.54 million people and their comrades didn't even exist…

  2. Unfortunately, in my family all man were fighting in WW1 in Austro-Hungarin army, because I have big family – just to correct language – my grand grand father was speaking Slovakian, Czech, Hungarian and Austrian, so …….??. During this time, normally the people in Empire were speaking languages more that 1, because the families were mixing with other nations, like today.
    At this time, we were so rich, happy, and peaceful and we leaved together that's why we were strong, but we lost because the monarchy was bankcrupt in late 1916, look after it!!!!!
    And don't forget, the whole situation was the same as WTC in 2001, just we had it in Sarajevo by Russian pressure (they wanted to have conflict)…please look after it!!!! 
    (example: the Last Czar must win fight or had a son -/example:Russian lost against Japan/) (Don't use communist written historical books because they are lying!!!)
    Somehow, the history is repeating itself, so we had a same situation as Dutch-British war in 1652..please, look after it!!! Michiel De Ruyter
    thanks

  3. In times of peace Austria frequently stirred up one nationality against the other that were under their rule (nine of them), in order to prevent their joint rebellion against them. This policy seemed to backfire during WWI. Many nationalities actually disliked one another, and Austria. Why would these soldiers want to fight at all?

  4. The Chief of the Imperial General Staff was NOT Count 'Franz Conrad'. His surname was Conrad von Hötzendorf. His full name and title were K.u.k. Feldmarschall Franz Graf (Count) Conrad von Hötzendorf
