Abstract

The catastrophe of the First World War only becomes comprehensively apparent when the close entanglements between "front" and "home front" are taken into account as a prerequisite for modern warfare. On the basis of a wide range of self-testimonies, the book makes visible the militarization of the entire society - of men as well as women and children - as well as various everyday wartime situations and experiences of violence. It deals with privates and officers, with army nurses and Red Cross helpers, schoolgirls making "gifts of love" for the soldiers and women engaged in "war welfare". Altogether, the volume offers a critical research record as well as a multifaceted history of women and gender during the First World War in Austria-Hungary.
