Gebetsbuch für israelitische Soldaten im Kriege. Edited by Max Grundwald.
Text in Hebrew and German. pp. 56.

At the beginning of the First World War, the Jewish population in the western part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire reacted with great enthusiasm, seeing an opportunity to prove their patriotism and so to counter anti-Semitic prejudice. During the war over 300,000 Jewish soldiers served in the Austro-Hungarian army, 25,000 of them as reserve officers.
