On the captivity of Italian soldiers in the Great War the collected data are impressive: of the approximately 600,000 men made altogether prisoners between 1915 and 1918, almost half of them were captured during the Battle of Caporetto, only to be dragged In the countless detention camps scattered in the territories of Eastern Europe, often described in the same journals and memorials as "forgotten by God". Through an unpublished prison diary is now given a reading of that great event that was the "after Caporetto" from a different angle of view, not only to tell a forgotten page and in some ways removed the story, but because time is likely to Bury also many painful memories, which otherwise are rediscovered and preserved. That through the individual affair of a man remain alive the cry of collective sorrow of those many prisoners who escaped in hell, of those who had the strength to leave even a faint sign of their ordeal, but above all not to forget the Suffering of those who returned home. And also who, however, no longer returned.
