10. 2nd Tyrolean Kaiserjäger Regiment (Austria-Hungary) at Hujcze - September 6-7, 1914



Quote:
The following article is the description of a relatively unknown action fought by the 2nd Tyrolean Kaiserjäger regiment in the late Summer of 1914 on the sandy plains of Northern Galicia in what is the present day Ukraine. In early September 1914,the best part of two battalions of the regiment, commanded by the youthful Oberst Alexander Brosch Edler von Aarenau were engaged by a six fold superior enemy force and were decimated in the ensuing action. In the epic that followed, the colonel was killed alongside many of his men and the regimental colour was captured by the Russians. The sacrifice of the regiment enabled the XVII.Korps and rest of the 3rd infantry division to successfully withdraw and evade capture and to build up a new defensive front. Following further withdrawals to the line of the River Dunajec the line was eventually stabilised. This article attempts to inform the reader in English of a much under reported theatre of operations in the Great War and in particular the capacity of the Austrian infantrymen so often maligned by contemporary authors. Holger Herwig in his "The First World War - Austria and Germany 1914-1918" rather unfairly describes the affair in a couple of lines as a senseless bayonet charge, which cost 2000 men which it did not and was not. Much of the specific action on the 6th and 7th of September 1914 is recounted from Ernst Wißhaupt's "Die Tiroler Kaiserjäger im Weltkriege" and the maps are also reproduced from that source and Österreich-Ungarns Letzter Krieg....
