GRANEZZA BRITISH CEMETERY

Raccoglie 139 Caduti identificati del Commonwealth appartenenti alle truppe del XIV Corpo della British Expeditionary Force che combatterono fra Asiago e Canove in particolare durante la disperata offensiva Austroungarica del 15 giugno 1918 quando le linee alleate furono infrante per oltre un chilometro di profondità e poi riprese il giorno successivo. Il Cimitero è gestito direttamente dalla Commonwealth Graves Commission e considerato territorio britannico: per volere della madrepatria le salme di tutti i 1.024 Caduti dell’Impero Britannico in questa zona del fronte non sono infatti mai state traslate. Fra loro è sepolto il ventiduenne Capitano Edward Harold Brittain del 11° Battaglione Sherwood Foresters (Nottinghamshire e Derbyshire Regiment), colpito il 15 Giugno 1918 da un cecchino nelle trincee davanti a San Sisto mentre si trovava sul lato sinistro della Compagnia A. Si trattava di un veterano della battaglia della Somme (1 luglio 1916) nella quale era stato ferito e decorato con la “Military Cross”. Sua sorella Vera Brittain (1893-1977) si distinse a sua volta nella Croce Rossa Britannica come aiutante volontaria (Voluntary Aid Detachment). Dopo la Grande Guerra nella quale era già caduto anche il fidanzato Ronald Leighton, Vera Brittain pubblicherà diversi libri fra i quali “Testament of Youth”, “Chronicles of Youth” e “Letters from a lost generation”. Erano i ricordi di quella "war generation" i cui giovani saranno definiti “Strong, brave, and beautiful. They combined great athletic prowess with deep classical learning. Poets at heart, they loved the things of the mind for their own sake and were scornfully detached from the common struggle. Although stemming from all parts of England, they were to be found above all at Oxford and Cambridge, and in the case of the younger men, at better public schools. When the war broke out, they volunteered for service in the fighting forces and did whatever they could to hasten their training and secure their transfer to the field of the battle. Their main fear was that the war would end before they arrived at the front. Brought up to revere England and to do their duty, they embraced their country's cause and accepted lightheartedly the likelihood of early death. Most of them were killed on the battlefields of Gallipoli, Ypres, Loos, the Somme, Passchendaele, and Cambrai. Those who were not killed were mutilated in mind and body” (R. Wohl, The Generation of 1914, London, Weidenfeld and Nicolson, 1980). Nel 1922 Vera Brittain si recherà a Granezza lasciando alcuni boccioli di rosa acquistati a Venezia sulla lapide di Edward e decidendo che alla di lei morte, avvenuta poi il 29 marzo del 1970 a Wimbledon, le sue ceneri venissero sparse sulla tomba del fratello. Anche per questo il cimitero Britannico di Granezza è uno dei più visitati dai turisti. La storia di Edward e Vera Brittain, narrata anche nel libro “Britannici sull’Altopiano” di Andrea Vollman e Francesco Brazzale ci riporta, oltre ad alcuni dei più drammatici episodi della Grande Guerra in Italia, ad una diversa e più ampia visione, su scala europea, di quello che fu realmente il primo conflitto mondiale. Per raggiungere il sito vedi itinerario Cimitero del Barenthal. Prendere il bivio a sinistra 700 metri oltre il Cimitero militare del Barenthal e continuare per 2,5 km.

“Chi avrebbe potuto immaginare che il bambino nato in una tranquilla, normale famiglia provinciale britannica avrebbe finito brevemente i suoi giorni in una battaglia tra le alte foreste di uno sconosciuto altopiano italiano? Oh Edward, sei così solo, perchè non posso rimanere a far compagnia alla tua tomba per sempre, su questo altopiano dove vi è pace e dignità, lontano dal mondo e dagli sforzi inutili di ricostruire la civiltà?” (Vera Brittain)

To My Brother (In Memory of July 1st, 1916)

Your battle-wounds are scars upon my heart, 
Received when in that grand and tragic 'show' 
You played your part, 
Two years ago, 

And silver in the summer morning sun 
I see the symbol of your courage glow -- 
That Cross you won 
Two years ago. 

Though now again you watch the shrapnel fly, 
And hear the guns that daily louder grow, 
As in July 
Two years ago. 

May you endure to lead the Last Advance 
And with your men pursue the flying foe 
As once in France 
Two years ago.
