Custoza - Fields of Doom

Description

In July 1848, the battle between the Piedmomtese Army under King Carlo Alberto and the Austro-Hungarian Army under Field Marshall Radetzky signed the turning point of the First Independence War, and the defeat of the Piedmontese dream of an Italian Crusade against Austro-Hungary.
In 1866, on 24th of June (the recurrence of Solferino), a far bigger, but inconclusive, battle was fought between the new Italian Kingdom Army under Vittorio Emanuele II, son of Carlo Alberto, and the Austro Hungarian Army of South led by Archduke Albrecht. The battle started as a meeting engagement, ending in a massive fighting. It was a crushing defeat of the Italian colors, but the Third Independence War gave Veneto to the Kingdom of Italy, because of its alliance with Prussia, who was winning the Austro-Prussian war of 1866.
