Kipling had been invited to Italy by the British Ambassador, Sir Rennell Rodd, who was concerned about the lack of understanding in England of the scale and cost of the Italian war effort.
Rodd's proposal was that distinguished writers from England and Italy should visit each others' front lines and then write about their experiences in the national and allied press.
Kipling's five articles were published in The Daily Telegraph and the New York Tribune.
The articles include: The Roads of an Army; Podgora; A Pass, a King, and a Mountain; Only a few steps higher up; The Trentino Front.
