Air operations over Piava during the last Austro-Hungarian offensive in June 1918
Languages of publication
The last Austro-Hungarian offensive on the so called southwest battlefield was accompanied by intense deployment of air forces. The air operations were carried out over and around the front virtually in its whole length - from the regions of former south Tyrol up to the Piava River basin. It was over Piava, where the Italians deployed numerous bomber formations, attacking the bridge constructions, roads, infantry assembly points or other strategic targets. Moreover, enemy air fighters were strafing the soldiers. The weaker K. u. k. Luftfahrtruppen, both in terms of quantity and quality, were active since the first hours of the offensive and in spite of suffering heavy losses, their pilots achieved several accomplishments in the air. The study is aimed at introducing the air war above the Piava River during the last Austro-Hungarian offensive in June 1918 and at the same time the last great deployment of air force of the Danube monarchy.
