Len's Summary: A new survey history about a major front often ignored in telling the history of The Great War. Taking its title from the battle lines in the snow-covered Alps, this book recounts Italy’s abandonment of its German and Austro-Hungarian allies, its entry into the war on the side of the Entente in May 1915 and the resulting stalemate which cost 689 thousand Italian dead before Vienna sued for peace in October 1918.
