Explanation. Some Cavalry got sent ahead to scout, and they ended up buying booze from some Gypsies. When the rest of the troops got there, it was night. Some Infantry wanted some booze, but the Cavalry wouldn't share. They started fighting, not with guns, but a brawl. Eventually, one of them started shouting about the Turks and running away. This caused people to start panicking, and the troops sleeping in tents woke up thinking they were under attack. Now, the Austrian troops were of mixed ethnicities, and a lot of them didn't understand German, so when their German commanders started shouting at them to halt, they misunderstood, as from what I've heard what they were shouting kinda sounded like Allah. Thinking they were being overrun by Turks, the troops started shooting anything that moves, in this case themselves. This eventually led to a full scale retreat. When the Turks arrived a few days later, they found 100,000 dead troops and they 'captured' the city.

> It is impossible to verify due to the available historical sources being written long after the battle, and its historical accuracy is in doubt.
#21 to #10 - Rascal (05/26/2013) [-]
It most likely happened.
User avatar #18 - drtrousersnake (05/26/2013) [-]
anyone else feel like an ignorant ******* because even after seeing this post twice before and catching my mistake both times, I still read Austrian as Australian.

They also declared war on the local Emu population and went to town on the ******* with machine guns.

i'm a Canadian history major, this happened

It is legit. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Kar%C3%A1nsebes. My country was part of the empire at the time and it was part of the problem. We speak different languages so your "halt" sounded a bit like "Allah"
#26 to #25 - massivhe (05/26/2013) [-]
did not find the article, but found the story... but your comparison from halt to allah... i do not get it
User avatar #27 to #26 - manicekman (05/26/2013) [-]
Some Austrian officers were yelling "halt" so people would stop ******* up and the Czech and Slovaks did not speak German so they heard "Allah" and were like "OMFG the Ottomans are attacking, lets shoot anything that moves"
User avatar #66 to #27 - icedcarbon ONLINE (05/27/2013) [-]
not to mention hussar groups were involved... They can be a key to win a war but also a total disaster like in this case...

Yet people complain when Americans do not know other nations history...

Yes, it happened.

This isn't in official history books. You know it 'cause it's popular on the internet. It's impossibile to verify. The description of the battle looks more like a joke someone took too seriously. 10,000 dead it's especially unrealistic.

Yeah, but their national anthem in 1876 was through the roof epic.
