Abstrakt(y)
A brief overview of the importance of suicide in literature and the state of research reveals the lack of studies that shed light on suicide in relation to (the First World) War. The usual definitions of terms include a suicide out of constraints that can come from outside. With regard to the Austrian army officers, this was usually the code of honor, which can require suicide not only in war and in duels. In the war, on the one hand suicidal tendencies in heroic figures are shown in the literature, but also the forced suicide of entire armies in the case of hopeless missions. In texts by Andreas Latzko and Joseph Roth, however, suicide is presented as an opportunity to undermine the madness of the war and prevent yourself from becoming a murderer.
