A Travel Guide to World War II Sites in Italy

A Travel Guide to World War II Sites in Italy Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This new travel guide provides detailed tours of over one hundred WWII sites in central and northern Italy. Most of these sites commemorate the Italian campaign (1943-45), when Allied and German armies battled from one end of Italy to the other. Other memorial locations relate to the Italian Resistance and the deportation of Italian Jews to concentration camps. Included are monuments, museums, battlegrounds, former camps, and war cemeteries.

Each chapter's tours focus on a specific city or region and follow a chronological sequence. The guide also offers maps, transportation tips, and a list of nearby hotels. This useful book thus complements general tour guides for Italy, which rarely comment on WWII locations.
