I feel as though Paraguay and Australia* should be included on this thread somewhere, for the War of the Triple Alliance and Great Emu War* respectively.

They were able to conquer and defend a giant multiethnic state over 400 years.

Longer than USA n00bs. Half the time of your existence you were ruled by Tommys.

Indeed. The romans probably were the best at fighting wars.

One could add the mongols, but it did not last long for them. They defeated the Japanese at Khalkin Gol in WW2 though.

The Austrians suffered from awful financial mismanagement and incredible corruption within the military hierarchy, and so they suffered a number of bitter defeats throughout the centuries. To say they were the worst in Europe at fighting wars is a little far fetched, but it certainly could be said that they were the weakest great power. Regardless, most of their victories were diplomatic and political rather than strictly military, and while they did lose a lot of major battles and wars, they usually seemed to come out on top through their careful alliances and sharp diplomacy.

Which could be said about any other nation in europe. Like Nipple said the only reason Austria survived is because of good diplomacy, certainly not because of their military prowess lol
