Memories of My Imprisonment During World War One
Cavaliere, Antonio Sorrenti (1897-1981)

This web site contains the original Italian and translated English versions of my grandfather's memoirs from his experiences during the First World War. I would like to thank Nonno for having the forethought to write down his personal history. It's an incredible account of a young soldier's journey from a small town in Calabria, to the treacherous slopes of Monte Grappa in the Italian Alps, to prison camps deep within the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Thanks also to my father, Luigi Sorrenti, for his help with the English translation.
