Austrian concession in Tianjin(Tientsin)

Do you know anything about the concession during First World War? Any battle took place during the Great War? Or it was taken back by Chinese local warlord peacefully after the declaration of war?

Hi Gao Yixing,
It seems from Wikipedia, that it was a peaceful takeover-

It is hard to imagine a small Austrian garrison resisting the entire Chinese army for long. Does anyone know how small the Austrian garrison was? Has anyone seen any photos of the Austrain garrison or the Austrian Concession?

Cheers
Chris
