Italian alpine units climbing a steep slope during World War I.While World War I is particularly known for its trench warfare, one interesting part of WWI history was the Alpine wars of Northern Italy. Perhaps those who faced the worst conditions were the Italians. Throughout most of the war Germany and Austria-Hungary occupied the high ground. Thus Italian soldiers were often forced to make suicide attacks against highly fortified mountain top positions, suffering heavy losses.
