Battles of the Isonzo - thesis on KuK logistical (and other) issues

Recommended Posts

You know how it goes, looking for one thing on Google and you find something of equal or even more interest (I was looking for 15th century cannon loopholes if you must know!)...

In this case a 2009 D.Phil (Wien) thesis which should be of interest to those of you interested in this GW operational area - Analyse des Stellungskrieges am Isonzo von 1915-1917: Darstellung der Eskalation des Waffeneinsatzes an der Isonzofront am Beispiel einer Division by a Oberleutnant Wilfried THANNER.

I have only dipped into it, but it has several interesting facts, including the comparison costs between an aeroplane, maschine gun, horse, and a rifle! It is at: http://othes.univie.ac.at/7525/1/2009-10-03_0506735.pdf

Trajan;

Will take a peek if time permits.

My father told me stories about his flame company at the last battle there; I long thought he was there, but he was in hospital again from a wound from Verdun that troubled him for over 10 years. (I checked thru his papers and he was back in hospital, not in Italy.) So he must have heard the yarns from mates in his company.

Bob

PS: Hope you are sporting your bullet-proof BVDs. Last time I was in Istanbul, my host was involved in a "little bombing" the day we were to leave, but he told me that you were not going to read about it in the papers. His cook was picked up for questioning, and he had to fill in for his cook, and almost didn't get us to the airport at 3 AM.
