Austrian medal "For bravery" - Part 1

Austro-Hungarian medals " For bravery " commonly appear in our collections and among collectors. Here is the history of perhaps the most famous Austrian and Austro-Hungarian medals for military bravery. The more than one hundred and thirty years of awarding the medal during the reigns of six monarchs ( initially exceptional, but in the last years of World War I was quite common ) manifested itself in a number of variants. The development of this badge of honor has its own interesting section, very closely connected with the development of the Austrian army. Thanks to their tradition, the " For Bravery " medal has become a real symbol of the imperial armed forces, similar to the Iron Cross in Prussia and the St. George's Cross in Tsarist Russia.
