A year on the plateau

«Among the books on the first world war one year on the plateau of Emilio Lussu is, for me, the most beautiful»
(Mario Rigoni Stern)

Theyear that is mentioned in the title is related to the time spent from the Sassari Brigade on theAsiago Plateau. the book makes reference to a series of incidents that occurred between June 1916 and July917 1.

Lussu, who also had been a lit interventionist and had fought with great courage during the entire war, takes a highly critical attitude towards military commands .

The war was bad conduct by unprepared General and cocky, unable to realize the mistakes, and ruthlessly decided to sacrifice thousands of human lives to conquer a few feet of the ground. In thefirst world war the Italy lost half a million of fighters, more than in the second world war.

Theatmosphere that Lussu communicates in its pages faithfully reflects a war which the Italian army fought obtusely alwaysoffensive until 1917, logorandosi almost to exhaustion and collapsing miserably to counterattack the austro-Germans in the battle of Caporetto.
