Most na Soči held a very important role between
the years of 1915 - 1917. It was an important Austro-Hungarian
hinterland post, which provided the front line on the hills of
Selski vrh, Mengore and Bučenica with a complete military infrastructure.
The aggressing, Italian army, did not manage to break through
the front line in all its eleven attempts. In spite of continuous
artillery fire the majority of civilians remained in the region.
In October 1917 the Austro-Hungarian and German army set forth
from the slopes of Selski vrh, Mengore and Bučenica. They confronted
the enemy on the mountain ridge of Kolovrat, where the battle,
the key moment of the breakthrough of the Soča front occurred.
