Story by Stephen J. Thorne

The Fight for Italy is packed with compelling stories, stunning photos and detailed maps about the Italian Campaign waged by Allied forces from July 1943 to February 1945.

Now, more than 70 years after the critical Allied victories on Sicily and the Italian mainland, The Fight for Italy will take you back to relive those battles.
