The article shows the manner and the extent of the participation of Dalmatian units and manpower in the 1878 occupation of Bosnia and Herzegovina. In addition it shows how the XVIII military division was organised and how the garrison army was stationed in Dalmatia at the time of the occupation of Herzegovina. The author uses historical sources to depict the process of the removal of the army from Dalmatia to conquer strategically important points within Bosnia and Herzegovina and the resistance that was mounted against the Austrian-Hungarian army. In addition, the article discusses the manner of mobilisation and the organisation of the army and its command within Dalmatia as well as its attendant problems, especially the inappropriate behaviour of the officers towards the soldiers and the forceful mobilisation of manpower, horses and other stock.
