This chapter discusses the reorganization of the Austrian army. It details the concessions awarded to Hungary, including allowing Hungarian regiments to swear their allegiance to the King of Hungary rather than the Austrian Emperor. In return for this concession, the Magyars agreed that German remained the language of command throughout the army. Other non-German-speaking regiments, depending on their provenance, would have a so-called Regimentsprache, or regimental language in addition to these two languages of command and service. Other changes include the abolition of Cuirassier regiments and conscription. The chapter then describes the 1875 revolt against Ottoman rule in Hercegovina and Austrian occupation of Bosnia and Hercegovina.

Keywords:   Austria, Prussia, Hungary, Hungarian regiments, regimental language, military reform, Cuirassier regiments, conscription, Bosnia, Hercegovina
