Near to Oppacchiasella: a walkway

Description

This photograph shows communication trenches protected by ballast and sandbags. These trenches were used to connect frontline trenches with reinforcement trenches. The town of Oppachiasella where it was taken, on the Carso, was destroyed by the war. The picture belongs to the photographic department of the Supreme Command of the Royal Italian Army, from an album entitled The War, in which the more ‘glorious’ memories of the war were illustrated.
