Expansion and consolidation of specific knowledge in the field of contemporary history by examination of new and uncommon topics, taking into account current tendencies and controversies of research, applying scientific skills (methods and working techniques) and linking with basic content, development of skills for the independent formulation of historical questions.

The war against Italy, which began in May 1915, was carried on with extreme brutality on both sides. The twelve Isonzo battles and the war in snow and ice on the Dolomite front are characteristic for this war. In November 1918, the Danube Monarchy had to lay down the arms. The result: Austria-Hungary broke into a series of successor states, Italy obtained today's South Tyrol and the Trentino. In the seminar we discuss the war events between 1915 and 1918 and in particular the alpine war, but also the development of the air war from the beginnings to the end of the war. It is also about the lives of the soldiers on the front, as well as about the lives of the civilians behind the front. It examines myths created during the war, but also realities that have since then been forgotten.
