GWASL 6: BLOOD ON THE ISONZO
Italy upended their Central Powers allies
by entering the war on the side of the Allies in May of 1915,
following secret negotiations. Italy fought mostly against Austria-Hungary
along the northern border, including high up in the now-Italian
Alps and along the Isonzo river. The war was initially a failure
for Italy despite being numerically superior to Austria-Hungary.
The Italian army repeatedly attacked Austria, making little progress
and suffering heavy losses, and then being routed in 1917 by a
German-Austrian counteroffensive after Russia left the war allowing
the Central Powers to move reinforcements to the Italian Front
from the Eastern Front. In October 1918, as civil unrest increased
in Austria-Hungary, the Italians attacked again. The Austrian
army broke, and the Italians drove deep into Austrian territory.
Fighting ended on 3 November 1918.
