Loss of ground at the Izonso riverbanks

Late August saw a suprise attack by the Austrian-Hungarian forces in the southern part of the Izonso battlefield.
The fast moving units managed to penetrate 30-40km into Italian territory before settling down into defencive positions.

This forced the Italian army into a tactical repositioning of its Izonso Army.
This hasty operation was even harder as the Austrian-Hungarians had managed to hit and destroy the Army HQ.

The Italian high command is sorry to inform that once Italian lands has once again been forced into the hands of the Hun vassals.
But be assaured that we will fight and take back our historicaly owned land.
