Re: Austrian ranks
In Response To: Austrian ranks ()

What I had in a file, apologies for the gaps.
Spelling may differ, depending on source used, and some of the German equivalents changed I believe later in the 19th Century.
The official definition for the responsibilities of each rank can be found for the Austrians in pages 1 to 30 of the Dienst Reglement 1807.

The ranks do not necesarily exactly match with exact same responsibilities across armies; as company sizes and the subsequent duties of posts within them differed slightly.
