Len's Summary: The sixty-mile-long Isonzo Front stretching from the Julian Alps to the Adriatic, presented appalling terrain for combat as those of us who participated in Mike Hanlon’s WW1HA 2011 Italian Front tour observed. Includes material on the battlefield today and on the Kobarid (Caporetto) Museum. -- Fortunate WW1HA members visited Caporetto (Kobarid in Slovenia) the site of a major 1917 Italian defeat on our 2011 tour of the Italian Front. The word Caporetto has entered the Italian language as a synonym for disaster.
