Hi AnDie,

I am not aware of a published book on the General. I can however give you his service and career details.

Have you tried:

Leppa, Konrad:
General der Infanterie Alfred Krauß ; Ein Vorbild f. Volk u. Heer
München: Lehmann, 1932. 135p.

Drofenik, Willi:
General Alfred Krauss. Eine Biographie
Wien: 1967. VIII, 374, 34, 13 Bl. 4.

You might also find his memoirs interesting:

Kraus, Alfred:
Die Ursachen unserer Niederlage, Erinnerungen und Urteile aus dem Weltkrieg, von General d. Inf. Alfred Krauss
München: J.F. Lehmann, 1920. 326p.

Although I haven't read any of these if I were you I would try to get hold Drofenik's book, which is a dissertation from Vienna University. Though while I have been able to find the two other in French libraries I have only been able to find Drofenik's in German and Austrian libraries. Mind you it is not a proper publication. You will just get a copy of the typewritten dissertation.
