Original map first published c.1920. Republished July 2016.
World war one map depicting the various battle lines drawn along the Italian Front, between Italy and Austria-Hungary, during the first world war 1914 - 1918. Most battles were fought in the treacherous terrain of north-east Italy, the alps making conditions in the trenches extremely dangerous. Please see our blog for further detail.
Published at the time of this map, c.1920:
Italy declared war on Austria, May 23rd 1915, and on Germany, Aug 27th 1916. She had been a member of the Triple Alliance, whose other members were Germany and Austria-Hungary. Austria's failure to acquaint Italy with her plans against Serbia in July, 1914, made a breach between the two nations inevitable, but for nine months following the outbreak of the war Italy remained true to the spirit of the Alliance.Meantime popular sentiment caused Italy to draw away from the Alliance in view of Austria's perfidy, and on May 4th, 1915, she formally denounced it and, as stated, joined the Triple Entente on May 23rd.

We make our own frames from moulding hand finished in our workshops. The standard finish is a distressed black with a gold slip inserted for the larger maps.
We finish the moulding in two other colours, Antique Red and Antique Green. These colours can be used on any of our prints or maps, both reproductions and originals, but have been chosen specifically to suit some of the antique prints and illustrations.
Some of the maps are very big so for weight, shipping and safety reasons we use 3mm acrylic as the glazing material.
