Austro-Hungarian Battleships 1914-18 - Ryan Noppen This slender book provides a short history of the development and use of battleships by the Austro-Hungarian Empire during the First World War. Aside from brief shore actions against Montenegro and French forces in October 1914 and against Italian naval and military units along the Ancona coast following Italy's entry into the war in May 1915, the battleships of the Dual Monarchy's greatest asset proved to be its deterrent value as a "fleet in being" at anchor, thus discouraging the Italian and Allied navies from engaging them in action in the Adriatic Sea.
