A battlefield guide to the scene of an Austro-Hungarian attack on the British Corps sector of the Allied front line on the Asiago Plateau, forty miles north of Venice in Northern Italy, on 15/16 June 1918. This comprehensive and attractive guidebook describes the terrain, the forces involved and the fighting, including the action leading to the award of two VCs.
This is an interesting account of a long-forgotten campaign.Medal News, October 2018 – reviewed by Allan Stanistreet
This battlefield guide forms part of Pen & Sword's very popular and highly useful 'Battleground' series, which serves visitors to the many battlefields extremely well by combining well researched, well written historical material with an excellent guidebook of the area.The Great War Magazine, January 2017
Excellent guide. 10/10
Throughout the book there are plenty of archive photos and maps, along with a good selection of modern pictures which illustrate what you can see there today. These include some of the mule tracks which remain in place, along with some of the dugouts and trenches that were burrowed into the rock, and equally are still there to be seen. Annotated maps and diagrams help to understand what you can see and relating it to the history of what happened there all those years ago. There are plenty of details of memorials and the cemeteries which you can visit while there, so plenty of very useful touring information for the battlefield visitor.Military Modelling, Robin Buckland
Just the thing to have with you if you visit the area today.
