"VIKTOR, FREIHERR VON DANKL (1854-), AustroHungarian general, was born in Udine. After service in the cavalry he was employed in important staff positions. In the World War he commanded at the outset the I. Army and defeated the Russians in the battle of Krasnik (Aug. 23-5 1914). After the Italian declaration of war he became in May 1915 commander of the defence forces in Tirol. As an army commander in the following years he took a successful part in the offensive against Asiago-Asiero, but shortly afterwards retired from his post on account of ill-health.
