Winter on the Alpine Front, 1916

Winter on the Alpine Front, 1916

Conditions on the Alpine front during the First World War could be very difficult. Here we see Italian troops operating at 3,000 metres above sea level.

This picture probably came from an Italian film, The Italian War on Adamello at 3000 meters, filmed in the spring of 1916.
