Due to its partitions and dissolution in the late eighteenth century, hundreds of thousands of Polish soldiers enlisted in distinct units in the armies of many countries – primarily those of the Russian and Austro-Hungarian empires, but also that of the German Reich and the French Republic. All these forces were uniformed and equipped by the parent armies, though often with explicitly Polish features. The collapse of Tsarist Russia in 1917 and of the Central Powers in 1918 allowed these diverse forces to unite in a re-created Polish Army under the new-born Second Polish Republic in November 1918. With full colour illustrations of their unique and colourful uniforms as well as contemporary photographs, this is the fascinating story of the Poles who fought on both sides of the trenches in World War I and then united to fight for their freedom in the Russian Civil War.

The First World War did not end in Central Europe in November 1918. The armistices marked the creation of the Second Polish Republic and the first shot of the Central European Civil War which raged from 1918 to 1921. The fallen German, Russian, and Austrian Empires left in their wake lands with peoples of mixed nationalities and ethnicities. These lands soon became battle grounds and the ethno-political violence that ensued forced those living within them to decide on their national identity. Civil War in Central Europe seeks to challenge previous notions that such conflicts which occurred between the First and Second World Wars were isolated incidents and argues that they should be considered as part of a European war; a war which transformed Poland into a nation.

The beatification of emperor Charles I (reg. 1916-1918) in late 2004 focussed public interest not only on his person, but also generally on the events of the two last years of the Great War. For this reason the Austrian Historical Institute in Rome invited historians from different countries to collaborate on a comprehensive publication about the political and cultural developments within the dual monarchy in these years. Written in three languages (German, Italian, English), the war against Italy, Austrian and Italian war propaganda as well as the situation of the Italians inside the Habsburg monarchy form one of the mainstays of this collected volume. Three articles analyze the attitudes of Austria's three big political camps - Christian democrat, socialist and German nationalist - towards the emperor, the war, the survival of the Habsburg empire as well as towards the projects of a reform of the state. Not only the big political groupings but also the catholic church vaccillated between loyalty towards the monarchy and veiled support for the struggle for national independence. Therefore, the formation of national states on the area of the dissolving Habsburg empire is another of the volume's mainstays, dealing primarily with emperor Charles's attempts to save the multinational empire by a large part of the ruling German and Hungarian class. Notwithstanding his sincere desire for peace, the emperors' not always limpid line in home and foreign politics led to a loss of prestige for the monarchy and finally to his forced abdication. After the abortive restauration attempt in Hungary, Charles of Habsburg-Lorraine had to retire into exile in Madeira, where he died in 1922.
