Between 1915 and 1918, Italy and Austria-Hungary fought a mountain war along their border. Italy had hoped to annex the Austrian Littoral, northern Dalmatia and the territories of present-day Trentino and South Tyrol. They had hoped to win these lands in a quick attack, but the offensive eventually descended into trench warfare, similar to the Western Front, but at high altitude and in cold conditions.
