Kudrna, with Biographical Essays by Digby Smith.
During the 24 years of the
Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars (1 January 1792 – 31
December 1815) more than one thousand people held general officer
rank within the Austrian army.
of these 1152 generals is recorded in this database.
Thus for the first time researchers
have a biographical database at their disposal which provides
a complete survey of the Austrian generals of this period.
This biographical dictionary is designed to
provide researchers a beginning point for further studies concerning the life
and career of the military elite of the Habsburg empire at this time. The basic
data are provided by Leopold Kudrna,
the biographical essays are written by Digby
Smith. As more information comes available, we will update the entries.
All of the biographies are formatted the same.
An explaination of the different sections in each can be found in: Key
to the Biographies.
Additionally, to keep the files down to reasonable
size we used numerous abbrevations. An explaination of each can be found in: Abbrevations
Our research is based on more than 100 different
sources. It would be impractical to list a full citation for each biography,
so we used an abbrevation citation. Complete citations for all our sources can
be found in our Bibliography.
A complete listing of the generals and links
to the individual biographies can be found in the Personal Indices:
A | Ba-Be | Bi-By | C | D | E | F | G | H | I/J | K | L | M | N | O | P | Q | R | Sa-Sm | So-Sz | T | U | V | W | Y/Z
