The author of the published material states that in 1915, after Italy got involved in the World War I on the Alliance part and the Italian frontline originated, the Austro-Hungarian troops on the Eastern frontline started to reorganize. Within the 27th Infantry brigade, 14th Infantry division, the 71st infantry regiment was included in the 2nd army. Later on, its soldiers also got to the Italian front, fighting for example in the battle at the river Piave. The document submitted – diary of the former Infantry regiment 71 – only originated, as suggested by its title, after the World War 1 was over. The document comprises typed records from 31 July 1914 to November 1918. These records are complemented by proposals for awards for individual persons along with the description of their merits, as well as sketches and drawings of several battles. It can be assumed that the diary originated with the aim to present the operation of the 71st Infantry regiment during the war, whether through the archival fund or for purpose of its printed publication. The diary is located in the Military Archive in Vienna, in the file Archiv der Trupperkörpern.
