Summary

The four bloody Isonzo battles are detailed as well as Conrad’s failed Straf offensive during May 1915. The Austro-Hungarian Army is devastated by the surprising Brusilov offensive June through September and the absence of effective command leadership. The German ally is forced to become involved in order to prevent total defeat, just as it had in 1914 and 1915. Romania’s disastrous entry into the war and a German-led victorious campaign is described. The rapidly declining home front situation is causing increasing starvation and a stirring among the various ethnic groups.
