Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The Special Operations Executive put in place, in the last part of the war, a strategy aimed at "focusing Italy" to eliminate it from the conflict. I am at the center of this volume - built on largely unpublished documents - operational subversion projects, attempts to organize military units by recruiting emigrants present in the United Kingdom, United States and Canada, or Italian prisoners of war in English hands. From the clandestine diplomacy of Emilio Lussu to the Mazzini Society's anti-fascist Legion project, from the negotiation activities of Filippo Caracciolo in Switzerland to the Vatican mediation project proposed by Adriano Olivetti, passing through the anti-regime activities of the Badogliano entourage: little-known pages of the fascist war and of the events that led first to September 8 and then to the Resistance, seen through the original British perspective.
