Venice, known as 'La Serenissima', is familiar as a tourist and cultural centre but less well known is its role in the Great War as a Front Line city.
At one point the front was less than 20 miles away and from 1915 to 1918 it suffered from more air raids than London. It was also a focal point for operations against the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The talk explores the city's contribution to the War.
Members and non-members of The Western Front Association are equally welcome. Any new visitors are guaranteed a friendly atmosphere and a warm welcome from a group of like-minded enthusiasts.
