IFMS a generous memory

In 2010, commemorating the first centenary of the Monastery of Santa Maria of Bellpuig of Las Avellanes, there is a mausoleum that honors all the soldiers of both sides who died during the civil war, when, at that time, at the monastery's dependence there was a military hospital on the Segre river front.

The mausoleum was recently renovated, a deep crack was created on the new wall, representing the fighters who had fratricidal fights 74 years earlier.

The 31st IFMS congress in Innsbruck 07-11 september 2016

From 7 to 11 September I had the good fortune to be in Innsbruck for the 31st Congress of the IFMS and I did not know what to expect as the only Mountain Soldiers I had met beforehand were the Italian Alpini with whom I have had close ties for several years. From the beginning I had been impressed by them and I agree with General Frido von Senger und Etterlin, Commander of the XIV Panzer Corps in World War II, who described them as follows “In Piedmont there were also many alpine units, the best that the Italian Army could produce---proud, quiet, outwardly not very disciplined troops, but reliable types, brought up the hard way, accustomed to camping in the eternal snows with only the barest supplies. They were magnificent soldiers, to whose pride and modesty I paid tribute whenever I happened to encounter an Alpino”.
