There was an excellent address at the New York Conference in the
1990's by an Austrian researcher (not Jewish) and I regret that I
cannot recall his name, about Jews in the German army in WW1...
A one-time commercial notice:
At the 1999 Jewish genealogy conference in new York, Dr. Erwin A.
Schmidl, then Head of Research at the Austrian Ministry of Defense
in Vienna, delivered a talk on "Jews in the Austro-Hungarian Armed
Forces 1788-1918". Audio cassette recordings of the lecture are
available >from AudioTapes.com. Cost is $8.50 plus $2 for U.S.
shipping; for international orders, add 10%. The company also sells
recordings >from past Jewish genealogy conferences held in Boston,
Los Angeles, and Salt Lake City and Washington DC.

For more information about Dr. Schmidl's lecture and about his book,
"Jews in the Habsburg Armed Forces 1788-1918," search for his name
