Operation AXIOM: The World War—The Endless Battles of the Isonzo, Part V
14 September-4 November 1916: The Seventh (14-17 September), Eighth (10-12 October), & Ninth (1-4 November) Battles of the Isonzo—The Italians repeatedly attacked to exploit their bridgehead at Gorizia (Sixth Isonzo, 6-17 August), suffering bloody losses; the Austro-Hungarian defenses held, but at a cost in blood they could ill afford; the Germans prepared to intervene to prop up their ailing ally.

Lest we forget.
