HISTORICAL EXCURSION-special STRAFEXPEDITION in the same places 100 years later.

This course is ideal for those who want to learn a little-known aspect of the great war, the intervention of the allies to defend the southern edge of the plateau, great barrier which contained the Imperial Army on the mountains people bulwark of the Veneto plain. In November 1917, to parry the consequences of Caporetto, arrives in Italy the British expeditionary force B.E.F. (British Expeditionary Force Italy) in adding machine-guns, mortars, artillery, field and logistics. The British introduce new tactics: they precede the offensive with a night of war patrols.

This is to avoid the static trench warfare: it tended to be translated for men in a State of passiveness. There are many stories related to these departments: some speak of sports events to soften the tension of wartime, other of battles won thanks to Rum dropped into enemy hands. The last assault takes on October 29, 1918 towards the Vezzena, so in the evening of 2 November the British tents at Osteria del Termine, former border with the Empire-Hungary.
