In one of the harshest winters of the last century, that which occured between 1916 and 1917, the Dolomites were the battle ground for a unique, horrible and likewise poetic conflict. It is reputed to have been the most anomalous conflict ever fought by man.
From the spring of 1915 to the fall of 1917 elements of the Austrian Kaiserjäger and German Alpenkorps on one side and the Italian Alpini troops on the other, engaged in battle at high altitudes,
in extreme weather and surroundings, while undergoing unspeakable hardships due to the difficulty in providing fresh supplies to such forward areas.
