This review is from: The White War: Life and Death on the Italian Front, 1915-1919 (Hardcover)
This is a very informative account, which is also well written, of an often neglected war as far as historians are concerned. I was stunned at the brutality leveled at the ordinary Italian soldier by the Italian High Command and the naked politicism of the war fought by Italy. However what the book needs is comprehensive maps of the campaign. I was continually flicking to the back pages, where there was a map without a scale, looking for the places referred to in the text, most of which were not shown.The maps included with the text were incomprehensible.
Even one set of coloured maps, in sufficient detail, would have sufficed.
