The fort belongs to the great system of fortifications in Austria to the Italian border.

Under the command of Captain Anton Perschitz, the garrison consisted of one hundred and sixty Landsschützen (1st Regiment) supported by sixty local. The armament was composed of three shells instead of 10 cm, manufactured by Skoda Werke, Pilsen in Bohemia, and twenty-two armored cupola machine gun. During the first year of the war and had suffered heavy bombing casualties but was not hit by the fury of iron and fire in the area of ​​Passo Vezzena Luserna and put to a severe trial Cima Vezzena Forte, Forte and Forte Lusérn Busa Verle, and even due to its location overlooking the Val d'Astico, never received a direct assault by the Italian infantry. In the First World War the fort passed into the hands of the State Property sublet it for a long period to the City of Lavarone.
