The presentation will be live and online.
Author and historian Tom Isitt takes us on a tour of the Italian Front, from 'the howling wilderness' of the Isonzo battlefields to the soaring peaks of the Dolomites. This was WW1 as most people have never seen it, a vertical war in snow and ice, where death was more likely to come from an avalanche than from an enemy bullet. Tom travelled the length of the front, from Trieste to the Swiss border, at times walking in the footsteps of the five British divisions that fought there in 1918, to explore some of the most complete and untouched battlefields of the war, where howitzers still sit on mountaintops 100 years later.
Tom makes a second visit to our webinar series, after the success of his first talk about 'Riding the Zone Rouge' some months ago.
