BOOK DESCRIPTION: In the summer of 1914, a boy is the first to climb the wall of the Cornetto di Salarno. Tense muscles, hands cut by hemp ropes, eyes fixed on the top: Italo Cattaneo does not know that this will be his last summer of peace, his last innocent climb. Soon the hell of the Great War will start for him. Enlisted in the Alpine troops and destined for the Autonomous Company “Garibaldi”, Italo will find himself living and fighting the war on the peaks, at an altitude of three thousand metres, along the icy border of the Glacier of Nobody that divides the Italian army from the Austrian one. An action novel freely inspired by the legendary exploits of the Adamello Devils, as painful as the fate of the many soldiers who died among the rocks, exciting and moving as the pact of love and respect that binds the men of the mountains. A story dominated by the majestic profile of the top of the Adamello, immense and cruel, a training ground for bravery, courage and life.
