FIND OUT MY NAME. WIN GOLDMARK. #4: AUSTRIAN-HUNGARIAN EMPIRE


The politics of Austria-Hungaria should focus on long-term stability, especially on the Balkans. That was my intention, even though the Balkan war told me a different lesson. The conflict with Italy later caused me to retire from my duty. During WWI I therefore didn’t play a major role anymore. However, I occur on a movie about WWI released in the 60s.

Johannisthal air disaster and airships during WWI

The Johannisthal air disaster was the second major blow to German naval aviation within one month in 1913. A test flight of the new LZ 18 (LII) airship ordered by the Imperial German Navy resulted in an in-flight explosion causing the death of the whole crew of 28 passengers.

Zeppelins were rigid airships pioneered by German Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin. Commercial flights carried 34,000 passengers on 1,500 flights until the outbreak of WWI in 1914. Airships had by then become a most luxurious way of travelling among the upper class.

During WWI German Navy and Army operated Zeppelin airships in two separate divisions. The main use of Zeppelins was in reconnaissance missions for the Navy. But Zeppelins were also used in bombing missions, especially those targeting London. Airships technical advantages were the possibility to fly above cloud cover and the ability to carry heavy loads in bombing missions. Airships could prevent British ships from approaching Germany or spot mining activities. Just the widespread availability of incendiary ammunition would make airships weaker targets.

Bulgarian troops invade Western Thrace

The invasion of Bulgarian troops into Western Thrace on October 19, 1913 meant the end of the short life of this young independent nation. The republic had just been established on August 31, 1913 and existed only until October 25, 1913. Actually it was founded only to be returned to the Ottoman Empire later. Greek forces, however, occupied its major cities Porto Lagos, Komotini and Alexandoupolis. Following the Treaty of Bucharest they handed them over to Bulgaria who held them until the end of WW1. Today it is a part of Greece.
The conflict itself was part of the two Balkan Wars. Both wars already reveal the same significant signs that later on returned in the annihilating process of the Great Powers during WWI. Overreaching nationalism, overstrained leaders, greed for power and barely understandable alliances within a few month caused mass mortality, expulsion and misery on an unprecedented scale.

Launch of HMS Queen Elizabeth

On 16 October 1913 the HMS Queen Elizabeth was launched in Portsmouth, Hampshire, UK. The super dreadnought class battleship was the first vessel fired by oil instead of coal.

The Queen Elizabeth entered service in January 1915. While still under testing she fought in the Dardanelles against the Ottoman Empire and became flagship for General Sir Ian Hamilton, Commander of the Mediterranean Expeditionary Force. She served in both World Wars.

Coal was the primary source for naval vessels in Great Britain, but had many disadvantages. Winston Churchill quoted in 1911: ‘The ordeal of coaling ship exhausted the whole ship’s company. In wartime it robbed them of their brief period of rest; it subjected everyone to extreme discomfort”. In fact it was impossible to refuel a ship at sea and providing the fleet with coal therefore was the greatest logistic obstacle at the time.

The use of oil enabled more efficiency in design and reduced the size of battleships that could travel twice as far at a much greater speed. Oil could be refueled at sea without stokers and reduced manning on ships. Since oil burns with less smoke than coal, a battleship would also reveal the fleet position later.

President Wilson opens Panama Canal

When U.S. President Woodrow Wilson pressed the button in Washington D.C. 100 years ago, the Gamboa Dike blew up in Panama 4,000 miles away. The dream of centuries became true by the gigantic blow of eight tons of dynamite that enabled the water from Atlantic and Pacific Oceans to unite. During the whole construction approx. 28,000 people had lost their lives. As soon as World War I had started, the strategic importance of the Panama Canal became clear:
Ships were now able to travel between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans in less than half the time previously required. The Panama Canal enabled ships to avoid the hazardous 2-3 month route around Cape Horn and allowed a faster and safer route to the US West Coast. Formerly separated between two coasts the US Navy fleet could now be moved from Atlantic to Pacific Ocean and vice versa within a short time. A passing of the Panama Canal by enemy ships was blocked by the US who remained ownership of the Panama Canal till 1999.

Ford Motor Company implements moving assembly line

Today 100 years ago the Ford Motor Company started to use the moving assembly line for the manufacture of its Model-T automobiles. With 140 assemblers, each assigned to a different task, the production time of a single car decreased from 12 ½ hours to 5 ½ hours. The moving assembly line began operation on Dec 1, 1913 and had immense influence on the world. For the first time work processes were largely automated by machinery.

Henry Ford himself opposed war, which he perceived as a terrible waste. When the United States entered the war in 1917, however, Ford became a major supplier of weapons. Especially the Liberty engine was used for airplanes and anti-submarine boats.

Austrian-Hungarian massively increase the size of its army:

Yesterday 100 years ago, the government of Austria-Hungaria passed a bill to increase the size of its army to 600,000 men. In the event of war the bill authorized an army size of 2,000,000 men. Less than nine months later, the Austro-Hungarian war against Serbia would escalate into World War I.
European Great Powers between 1890 and 1913 built up their armies enormously. By 1913 most of the countries in Europe had at least doubled their spending in military from 1890 – the armies were monstrous. The reason for the military buildup was primarily nationalism. In order to be better than the other countries, the leaders perceived a stronger military would be the best way to reveal their prowess.
Though tensions increased between the countries and it would only be a matter of time before one of the leaders decides to use his army for something.
