The Trentino Salient was the scene of the White War. The rugged terrain of the area made this war a confrontation marked out by sudden attacks of a few hundred soldiers, putting to the test individual skills and military mountaineering. Despite repeated and bloody attacks, even in high altitude went delineating an exhausting war of position, made even more precarious by the extreme weather conditions. Kilometers of tunnels were dug into the mountain, huge housing units were built in the extreme and increasingly powerful artillery were brought on the tops. A comparison in which the death not only by weapons, could come from avalanches or rock climbing for the conquest of enemy positions.
