Volle Kraft Voraus - Erfolge und Tragödien der K.u.K.-Schifffahrt
Until 1918, Austria had a coast. The Imperial and Royal navy and commercial fleet were serious international players, but were not without their share of problems, for instance the sinking of the luxury steamer Linz with the loss of almost 3,000 lives. This three part program tells the story of the successes and tribulations of Imperial and Royal seafaring.
