Operation AXIOM: The World War—The Endless Battles of the Isonzo, Part VI
10 May-8 June 1017: The Tenth Battle of the Isonzo—The Italians switched tactics, attacking the Austro-Hungarians across a broad front instead of targeting a breakout from the bridgehead at Gorizia; after initial Italian success in May, an Austro-Hungarian counterattack in June recovered nearly all of gained/lost ground; Italian morale plunged; Austria-Hungary continued to wobble.

Lest we forget.
