The guide describes the ground and operations covered by the British, French and US Expeditionary Forces deployed from France to the area north of Venice between November 1917 and Spring 1919. These forces supported the Italians after their disastrous defeat at Caporetto and helped stem the Austrian and German onslaught. This is the first guide to the Allied contribution and the Piave Defence line. The guide also covers the rear areas - supply and repair services, training and recreation. It also describes the movement to Italy and subsequent service and care of the 16,000 British and 20,000 French horses and mules.

The acclaimed “Battleground” series from the renowned military publishers Pen & Sword provides an extensive range of titles describing specific battles, particularly during the two World Wars. Well written and illustrated with contemporary photos, drawings and maps, the books give much more detailed and vivid descriptions than found in more general titles, bringing the battlefields alive for visitors as well as informing and entertaining readers at home. Where appropriate, the guides include recommendations for visiting the memorials, cemeteries, monuments and museums by local walks and/or car tours and include recommendations for further reading.
