UCD hosts ‘Lifelong Learning Taster Lecture – My grandfather’s war: memories from the Italo-Austrian front (1917-18)’
November 24 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join Dr Paolo Virtuani for this UCD Lifelong Learning Taster Lecture for College Awareness Week 2020.
Some people are lucky enough to have had a grandfather born in the 19th century (1898), fighting in WW1, surviving a wound, narrowly avoiding a major military disaster, recovering from the Spanish Fever and, on top of it all, leaving a memoir of his experience! This lecture will trace his movements throughout 1917-18, against the backdrop of the Italo-Austrian front, the “White” War on the Alps.
