Italian Army of World War I 1915-18 by David Nicolle
Book DescriptionDue 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.
