Hier eine kurze Beschreibung des Buches auf Englisch durch den Autor:
The Red Devils - the English version of the book titled “Él magyar, áll Buda még!” on Austro-Hungarian cap badges is out now. The volume is a sequence to “Csak előre, édes fiam..." The book’s subtitle is Badges of the Cavalry Divisions and Brigades, Hussar and Uhlan Regiments and Assault Half-Regiments Recruited from the Territory of the Kingdom of Hungary in the Great War.
The richly illustrated volume presents 239 badges on 222 pages, complete with archive photos, images of field caps and other relics featuring cap badges.
Following an introduction to Austro-Hungarian cap badges, the book provides an insight into the changes to the structure of the Austro-Hungarian cavalry during the First World War. In the next chapter, the activity of cavalry corps and divisions in the Great War is discussed in detail, with regard to both strategy and tactics. In the case of regiments, the persons after whom the units were named are introduced briefly. The author presents all known versions of each badge – in images and in text alike. Reverses, maker’s marks, designer’s marks and methods of attachment are all discussed. To help orientation, each badge is pictured actual size, while certain important details are also featured enlarged. To provide additional information, period picture postcards and field postcards, as well as photographs portraying the wearing of the badges by soldiers are also included. A list of the most important badge manufacturers in Budapest and in Vienna can be found in the book, completed by partly colour images of catalogues and period documents regarding the ordering and shipping of badges to contemporary collectors.
