Svetozar Boroević von Bojna - the Knight of Isonzo (IV)

Ljubljana, 11 August - General Svetozar Boroević von Bojna, the commander of the Austro-Hungarian forces on the Isonzo Front who successfully deflected the attacks of the stronger Italian army, was considered one of the more able commanders of WWI. As Boroević noted in his memoirs, he was "the only field marshal the southern Slavs had ever produced".
