Towards Gorizia


The title is simply the translation on the caption written on the back of this picture (La meta di Gorizia). The town was taken on August 8, 1916 by Italian troops during the Sixth Battle of the Isonzo (also known as the Battle of Gorizia), which was the most successful Italian offensive along the Isonzo river during the Great War.
