Overall customer rating: 5.000

Excellent history

by cokycola on Jul 11, 2013

Mark Thompson's history of the fighting on the Italian Front during World War I skillfully combines military maneuvers, political machinations, and cultural background. A balanced, incisive, and readable history. Among the book's strongest sections are those dealing with the writers, including Svevo, D'Annunzio, and Gadda, who were involved in the fighting. Thompson's assessment of the average Italian soldier's motivations and experiences on the front are persuasive and balanced, and help foster a deeper understanding of the interplay between regional and national identities in the still-young unified Italy, and the tragedy of war. This is a superb work of history that enriches the vast literature of the Great War.
