They decided to take on the Austrians by themselves when they realised no one was prepared to assist them.They pushed the austrians into surrender and even the french cavalry had diffiuculy being able to keep up with their infantry because Serbs wouldn't rest.

Well, I think Russians were helping quite a lot, binding huge Austrian forces in Galizia and constantly threatening with a breakthrough into the Pannonian plain.

It is interesting that a myth still persists that Austria-Hungary did very bad in that war. I don't share this opinion. In my view it is only partially true. Given the desolate internal situation of A-H, it is remarkable that they successfully kept repelling large Italian forces, while holding on in Galizia (albeit with massive German assistance). In addition, they won that offensive war in Serbia. There are few examples of successful warfares on foreign soils in modern European history. On the other hand, one has to admit that they helped themselves with terrible attrocities against civilians and that Serb forces had been exhausted due to the recent Balkan wars. However, on the other hand, Austrian war industry had to supply its German colleagues on the Western Front and couldn't thus concentrate on its own war efforts only (this concerns specifically the Austrian heavy artillery pieces which proved successful against the French).

No Austro Hungary did not won anything in Serbia especially not offensive war.Austro Hungary lost World War 1 :-)))))))
Austro Hungary did not won anything in Balkan nor in the east nor in the west
It's funny to see Czech defending Austro Hungary.Austro Hungary was defeat in all fronts during WW1
Austro Hungary after 1st phase 1914 against Serbia lost around 250.000 men , every 7th was Czech. 250/7 Around 35000 were Czechs

Central powers failed in Serbian Campaign,Balkan Campaign,Vardar Offensive,Salonika (Macedonian) front

Central powers were definetly destroyed in Salonika Macedonian front

150.000 Serbian troops for Vardar offensive

the austrians surrendered to serbia? hoho
Faced with Russia, Austria-Hungary could spare only one-third of its army to attack Serbia.
Serbia was conquered in a little more than a month
1917 Serbian and French troops finally made a breakthrough, after most of the German and Austro-Hungarian troops had withdrawn. This breakthrough led to the final victory of WWI.

this war was not like ww2.
apart from the assansination causes of the war included the imperialistic foreign policies of the great powers of Europe, including the German Empire, the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the Ottoman Empire, the Russian Empire, the British Empire, the French Republic, and Italy.

Why shouldn't I defend the Habsburg Empire?

The Austrian Empire was a very peaceful place to live until the ethnoterrorist generations of 1840's invented the deadly concept of "nation state" which inevitably resulted in various acts of ethnic cleansing, genocides, two world wars and Europe-wide separatism.

From this point of view, Austria-Hungary was a degenerated Austrian Empire. It became very aggressive in the later stages. This was, however, the result of it having to fight various internal separatists following the 1848 ethnorevolutions.

This is as if you said that Germany didn't win anything against France in WW2.

Of course, Austria-Hungary lost in full in the end. I think we all know it.

Austro-Hungarian army:

Multicultural multiethnic, with much communication problems.

Then there was Pan-Slavism, which was rampant in those days. Many Slavs from Austro-Hungarian army surrendered themselves, and even deffected to the other side and fought against Austria-Hungary, like the Czechoslovak legions:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Czechoslovak_Leg...

Then there is the issue of morale. The Austro-Hungarian army essentially fought for the idiotic emperor in Vienna, who most didn't give care about.
They also had to fight for a state they didnt want to be part of. While Serbs were fighting for their country, and the survival of their very nation. Who do you think will fight harder with more morale?

For battle of Cer, Battle of Kolubara, Battle of Drina, the commander of the Austro-Hungarian forces was Slovene idiot Oskar Potiorek, not even Austrian or Hungarian.

Then, Austro-Hungarian army fought against Romania on Romanian front, Italy on Italian front, Serbia on Serbian front, Russia on Russian front.

Serbs however did very well, they fought very well, however it is not as great as Serbs portray it to be.

remember croatia-kurbatian retard Serbia was not conquered at all

yes many cowards from austro hungarian army surrendered to Serbs

i understand you kurbat,you croats were austro hungarian slaves,you austrians

JNA could spare only 1/10 of its army and get 1/3 of croatia

"Serbia was conquered in a little more than a month"

Battle of Kolubara alone lasted more than 1 month you kurbatian subhuman

Every 15 men in austro hungarian army was croatian dog

20.000 kurbats lost their lives within 1st phase 1914 alone

lol you couldn't be a threat to anyone ever again, y'all too stoopid haha start rolling the tanks out, I haven't seen a good comedy in a while now.
Just because Croats don't have any history, doesn't mean Serbs should forget about theirs.

If Austrian - Hungarian masters would not protect Croats today Croats would not exist

Germans Austrians Turks Bulgarians Hungarians were all rulers of Croats and Croatia in some way or another

Krbava 1493 was disaster,same story Mohacs 1526,Djakovo 1537,Klis 1537,Gvozdansko 1578 only Sisak 1593 was success with foreign help

My ancestors gave me this country, they built it, they defended it.
What, you want to say "fck you" to your ancesors? That is very ungrateful, your ancestors died and shed blood so you could say "fck you" to them?

My ancestors gave me this country to take care of, they took care of it too, I now have to take care of it, for my children, grandchildren, who will take care of it too.
