Italy : the Secret War Against Mussolini, 1940-1943 : the Official History of SOE Operations in Fascist Italy

DAISY - 2015
Rate this:
Drawing on long-classified documents, this is the official history of the war waged by Britain's Special Operations Executive on Benito Mussolini's Fascist Italy. It provides an account of SOE's clandestine efforts to strike at Italy and sever its alliance with Nazi Germany, uncovering missions as remarkable as a plot to assassinate Mussolini and plans to arm the Mafia. It also recounts SOE's attempts at causing trouble inside an enemy country as opposed to an enemy-occupied one. This is a tale of desperate daring and sacrifice, climaxing in one of the most extraordinary episodes of the war: the delicate and dramatic dealings between the Allies and the Italians that led to Italy's surrender in 1943.
