It's not a chance if the Naval Institute Press decided to make this book known to US people, written by a gallant sailor and a gentleman who fought for his homeland before the italian armistice because the honour,and after the armistice,for the freedom.
An excellent book that testify as Italians fought a wrong war on the wrong side, most of them understanding it,with the higest feeling
of sacrifice.

One may disagree about this point of vieuw, but which the reality is? The British one,or the German? And philosophically, what's the truth? I'm not a historian,but I think that Grand Fleet won strategically and High Sea Fleet won tactically. Jellicoe,Beatty,Scheer,Hipper,officers and sailors,all fought gallantly and honourably for their country.The truth is into their hearts.
