was so weak that its commanders were forced to seek a ceasefire. At the final stage of the Battle of Vittorio Veneto, the troops of Austria-Hungary

were defeated, ceased to exist as a combat force and started a chaotic withdrawal. From 28 October onwards, Austria-Hungary sought to negotiate a truce but hesitated to sign the text of armistice.

The cease-fire would start at 3pm on 4 November, but a unilateral order of the Austro-Hungarian high command made its forces stop fighting on 3 November. After the war, the Kingdom of Italy
