British Forces in Italy 1917-1918 by Dale Hjort.
This talk will examine how Italy's war with Austro-Hungary led to British deployment and the challenging conditions of Alpine front. Dale will detail the defensive action of Asiago on 15th June 1918, the crossing of the Piave River and final victory at Battle of Vittorio Veneto.
The presentation will also look at the 48th Division's advance through the mountains.
Members of The Western Front Association and non-members are equally welcome.
