The book
Following the success of "Andar per Trincee” (first volume of the series "Andar de Bora" edited by Alessandro Ambrosi) published in 2004 - ninety years since the outbreak of the First World War - Transalpina Editrice is now publishing a new book that comes exactly nintety years since the end of the First World War. "Trincee Nascoste" intends to keep alive the memory of men whose stories were lived on the Karst and still lie there under a thin layer of stones and tufts.
"Trincee Nascoste" is an unconventional book that invites memories of thousands of "poor fellows" of different nationalities who sacrificed their lives in that terrible tragedy and is at the same time an excursion guidebook to safely visit trenches that time and nature have hidden under vegetation - once the theatre of battle and bloodshed and now silent paths that a visitor can quietly rediscover on the splendid Karst plateau.
"Trincee Nascoste" is an easy-to-consult colour-pictures guidebook, complete with accurate bibliography and useful facts and information. Seven routes complete with colour maps are described by five experts of Karst battles. Their descriptions of historical events and practical excursion details will guide you to rediscover the old First World War trenches on the Karst around Trieste, Gorizia and Slovene villages.
