About this book
A compelling and moving account of a largely ignored but highly significant First World War campaign - the invasion of Austria by Italy - which cost the lives of over a million men and gave birth to Fascism. Using accounts from some of the many modernist writers who took part in the campaign, including Hemmingway, the author of "The Paper House", an account of the fall of Yugoslavia, brings to life a forgotten conflict that shaped modern Italy.
Presents the military history of First World War that gave birth to fascism. This book shows how some of the greatest modernist writers in Italian and German - Ungaretti, Gadda, Musil, Hemingway fought in these trenches.
