Would you have any suggestions for books that talk about Italy’s role in WWII?

Thank you,

Bob Peters




Dear Mr. Peters,

Although there is a wealth of books focusing on aspects of Italian participation in World War II, from tanks to ships to aircraft and to the various fronts, there does not seem to be many attempts at a single, comprehensive history. Among the few I found were Italy at War, by Henry Hitch Adams for Time/Life Books, and Italy Betrayed, by Peter Tompkins.
