The book
Ninety years after the beginning of the first world war, here is a book that helps us not to forget. An original work within the field of historical studies, this publication is intended to be both a book to remember the many "poor men" who immolated their lives in that terrible tragedy and a tour guide-book to visit the trenches, once places of hard and cruel fighting and now quiet and safe paths to walk along on the beautiful karst plateau.
"Trenches of war, paths of peace": this is how Col. Schaumann introduces this handy guide, all in colour, with a precise bibliography and useful information in the appendix. Two experts of the karst war take us along twelve easy routes (illustrated with colour maps), talking about history, describing the trails and giving practical tips in order to discover the remains of the World War I trenches on Trieste's Gorizia's and Slovenia's karst.
