Italy 1917 – society is violently split down the middle over the question of whether to continue intervention in the war.  Anarchists and socialists are intent on causing so much trouble that continued intervention is impossible.  Railway lines are ripped up, battle lines are drawn.  On the Isonzo front a General smells socialism behind the troops reaction to his orders and a disastrous Italian attack upon the Austrian positions leads to a mutiny among the decimated troops.

See you there,
