4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting study of this little known aspect of the WWII Italian campaign, 7 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an interesting book ... quite a few typos and other errors but its not been 'professionally' published. Its quite astonishing in its detail of life in Italian POW camp's and about the Italian resistance in this one valley in north Italy, for the author this has clearly been a labor of love. The book breathes life into a little known aspect of WW II and I much enjoyed it.

Not really what I expected - probably my fault! This is a pamphlet and doesn't contain much detail other than brief commentary. I was hoping for something more exhaustive

5.0 out of 5 stars Little known topic but a really interesting read, 24 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Personally I had little idea of the exploits of the Confederate States Navy, nor of the role of the UK in the achievements of the CSN. I found this book fascinating, a very easy read but with enough detail to keep the interest up. Strongly recommended.

Really just beautiful choral music at its very best. So relaxing, so peaceful yet stirring and moving... just sit and listen as your mind stills and your thoughts relax.
