Product Description

Product Description

Italy, July 1944. The unendurable insult to Italy?s inherently genial way of life brought about by Hitler?s storm-troopers and Mussolini?s Fascist toadies was both taking its toll on the people of Italy and creating a fledgling underground Resistance movement whose heroic ranks would soon swell to nearly 200,000 brave men and women.


Author Leon Weckstein was there--an American GI in combat fighting with and befriending the Partisans. Here is the story, as told through eye-witness accounts and carefully researched historical archives, of the Italian Partisans and their American OSS allies? battle to destroy the Nazi-Fascist regime and expel the culprits from their beloved Italy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bravery and Courage show through 29 Jun 2014

It is very interesting to learn of the amount of work that was done by various Partisans to defeat the Nazi's during WWII. I found courage and strength in this. Their bravery was beyond expectation and it shows that the allied forces were not alone but needed and had the help of many local people

This has been a fascinating story to read. As sometimes happens with kindle editions there seem to be some transcription errors but nothing too bad. If you are a history buff you will enjoy this book.

There were some obvious historical inaccuracies contained within the book. Also I wasn't impressed with the authors style of writing, it was an interesting story from the prespective of this little known aspect of the war.
