Summary/Abstract: The Serbian army in 1914 was a compact striking force, well trained, well led, and seasoned by its victories in the Balkan wars. Its total numerical strength has been estimated as high as 450,000 effectives, who were grouped in three levies according to age. Men from twenty to thirty-one made up the first poziv (levy); those from thirty-two to thirty-nine, the second; those from forty to forty-five, the third. In an emergency every man who could shoot a rifle would be used, regardless of age. Septuagenarian warriors, affectionately known as čiče (uncles), were common in Serbia.
