La guerra verticale: Uomini, animali e macchine sul fronte by Diego Leoni

By Diego Leoni

Quando, il 24 maggio 1915, si aprí il fronte italo-austriaco, nessuno di coloro che avevano teorizzato l. a. guerra di montagna avrebbe mai immaginato che cosa sarebbe stata. Tanto meno coloro che si accingevano a combatterla. Non fu guerra lampo, né di movimento, fu guerra di posizione: ma su un terreno sconosciuto, inospitale, e che da lí a poco avrebbe mietuto le sue vittime con il freddo e le valanghe. Gli eserciti dovettero misurarsi anche con quella Natura: elegant alla vista, celebrata, nemica. Lí dove si pensava potessero agire solo piccole pattuglie, si stanziarono ingenti masse d'uomini che, according to vivere, dovettero trascinare in quota masse di animali, e una quantità iperbolica di materiali, macchine e armi; sfollare parte delle popolazioni e militarizzarne altra; allestire un esercito parallelo di lavoratori civili e prigionieri. los angeles guerra di montagna fu molte guerre: di masse sugli altopiani, alpinistica sulle Dolomiti e sui ghiacciai, sotterranea in tutti i settori, tecnologica e di saperi. Infine, si fece sistema che si autoregolava, sovrapponendosi e sostituendosi a quello alpino. Il libro di Leoni racconta come tutto ciò poté accadere, di come los angeles sfida militare fosse stata preannunciata da quella turistico-alpinistica fin dalla seconda metà dell'Ottocento; di come vissero e raccontarono quell'esperienza i combattenti, ma anche i prigionieri, i civili; di come cambiarono le relazioni fra uomo e ambiente. Lo fa mettendo in campo al pari degli eserciti, molte self-discipline, molti saperi, molte voci e molti corpi.
