It was because ot such resistance In the faco of overwhelming forces of en- emy artillery and Infantry that the civil population was ablo to retire. It was owing lo the. valor ot Italian aviators, combtttlng the Austro-Ger- ronn nrmy ot th'e air, that fleeing wo- men, children and old men. who crowded -were not struck down by burstlnc bombs.
