MAY 1915 “IL PIAVE MORMORÒ”

On 24 May 1915 Italy fielded on the Isonzo front with an army of nearly one million soldiers on 40 divisions. It was far superior to the number of men and weapons of the Austro-Hungarians. These, however, enjoyed better defensive conditions: the positions of the Austrians were usually higher than the Italian line.
