Austro-Hungarian, Isonzo-Armee 1915 Tinnie-This pin depicts men fighting a battle, with the script, ISONZO-ARMEE 1915 below them. It is made of a bronze toned tombac. It is very nicely marked on the reverse with the name of the maker, Herrmann Wien. There is a vertical needle pin that works perfectly.
History: The battles of Isonzo represented Italy's main offensive efforts against the Austro-Hungarian Empire during World War I. The eleven battles took place between 1915 and 1917 along the Isonzo River in northeastern Italy. The results were usually high losses on both sides.
