The Battle of Caporetto
Suddenly, many of those who had surrendered and run away turned around and grabbed their rifles to fight. The full story of the famous battle in 1918.
Thirty months of war boiled down to a desperate battle on a small, poor piece of land. The incompetent leader Luigi Cadorna, alongside Badoglio, lead millions of under-militarized and inadequately trained Italian men to slaughter by the Austrian troops. Alfio Caruso narrates the complications of the Italian army as the Austrian-German armies weakened in the summer of 1918. The desperation of families in Udine, the extreme resistance in the Piave, the controversial shift in leadership from Cadorna to Diaz, and the role of the masonry in saving Badoglio.
