The siege of Venice by Jonathan Keates ( Book )
8 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Relates the city's ill-fated attempt in 1848 to resist its Austrian occupiers and declare an independent Venetian republic. The unequal combat lasted for more than a year until starvation, disease and other depredations exhausted the Venetians and their short-lived republic. Keates conveys life inside the besieged Adriatic city in 1848. Food queues, dwindling water supplies and outbreaks of cholera conspired to undermine morale. Fire-watches were kept as Marshal Radetzky pulverised the city with canon, howitzer and mortar. History's first recorded use of aerial bombardments occurred as hot-air balloons dropped explosives. The Venetians showed extraordinary tenacity under fire. "Resisteremo fino all'ultima polenta!" was the general cry - "We'll hold out until the last slice of polenta!" However, on August 24 the saga of human loss and famine came to an end: republican Venice capitulated and became once more a fiefdom of the abhorred Habsburgs
