Anyone interested in the specific kuk military should check out "Beyond Nationalism: A social and political history of the Habsburg Officer Corps 1848-1918" by Istvan Deak.

F. Morton, A Nervous Splendor. Archduke Rudolf, Maria Vetsera, the Emperor, family politics and also Austro-Hungarian politics.

Any other opinions about this book from forum members? Morton seems to attract a lot of critics.
