Capital of Austria-Hungary and the Austrian Empire, Vienna was the cultural and political center of the country, although Hungary had its own capital and parliament in Budapest.

Vienna was not directly threatened by the war, but, on August 9, 1918, the Italian writer and flyer Gabriele D'Annunzio led nine Ansaldo S.V.A.s from the Venetian La Serenissima Squadron in the 'Flight over Vienna,' dropping 50,000 cards in the colors of the Italian tricolor and bearing D'Annunzio's message to the Viennese that destiny was turning from them to Italy, that the Italian flyers had come for the joy of daring to do so, and that they could do so when they wanted, and at an hour of their choice.

Vienna is a city in Austria-Hungary.
