Well, eventually, its question specifically saying that why it

declare war on Germany b/c Italy which at first neutral, joined the

Allies nine months into the war. Italy claimed that its membership

in the Triple Alliance had been a defensive strategy and they

argued that they were not obligated to stand by their old ally and

that's how they forged stalemate into the Western Front and the

Eastern Front.
