CP#43 von Below Offensive Originally VON BELOW. I chose to make this event negate the Mountain terrain as well, so that the Italians cannot prevent retreat from a border mountain space they might have seized.

Historically, the CP coalition actually conducted successful assault operations through very high ground, with masterful use of elite mountain troops and infiltration tactics. Additionally, Italian defenders deep into the Austrian mountains would certainly have experienced supply difficulties that would have affected their defensive capability. The event is now playable in or after 1917 only.
