The dilemma of the young Italian kingdom and the experience of her army in World War I (1914-1918) were unique among the combatant nations. Late to enter the war against the Central Powers, she faced a massively defended Austro-Hungarian front in the north, including strong mountain features, as well as distractions in the Balkans and a simultaneous rebellion in her Libyan colony. Costly and repeated battles on the Isonzo front culminated in the disaster of Caporetto in October 1917, followed by a remarkable revival and eventual victory in 1918. This concise study describes and illustrates the Italian Army's campaigns, organisation, uniforms, weapons and equipment – including the famous 'death companies' and Arditi assault troops.

Book Description Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Condition: New. Raffaele Ruggeri (illustrator). Language: English. Brand new Book. Due to her refusal to support Austria-Hungary at the beginning of the war, Italy was left in a position of neutrality. Both sides wanted Italy involved in the war and she was able to hold out for the best possible deal - this time on the allied side. This work shows that the majority of Italy's battles took place on the frozen slopes of the Alps, including the numerous battles of the Isonzo, the disaster at Caporetto and, in its aftermath the holding of the Piave line. Also covered are the eventual victory at Vittoria Veneto, and the conquest of Trieste following the Austrian collapse. The Italian army was also involved in fighting in Albania and the Middle East, as well as suppressing a pro-Ottoman uprising in Libya. Seller Inventory # AAC9781841763989
