The establishment of the coastal artillery as a military branch in 1902. : A question about professionalisation, modernisation or both? (English)
Abstract [en]

The Swedish coastal defence took on a whole new meaning after the introduction of the coastal artillery in 1902. The establishment of the coastal artillery meant that the Swedish military had access to a whole new military branch, in addition to the Army and the Navy. Under the direction of one general, two regiments were established. One in Vaxholm and the second in the naval city of Karlskrona. The aim of this essay is to investigate how the Costal Artillery were established, by analyzing the parliamentary of the year 1901. I also analyzed one of Karlskronas local newspapers of the time, and see what is written about the new military branch.
