Review of: M. Berrettini, Great Britain and Italian Anti-Fascism: Covert Diplomacy, Intelligence, Special Operations; Id., The Italian Resistance and the British Special Operations Executive (1943–1945)

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article review

Abstract

In Italy, the study of Resistance during the Second World War often suffered from an Italo-centric approach, which tended to disconnect the dynamics of the local movement from international relations. The new Italian historiography has challenged that. In a pertinent two-volumes research based mostly on British documentary sources, Mireno Berrettini, an emerging Italian scholar, rejects the Italo-centric approach in favour of a broader reflection that takes into account both the local contribution to the anti-Fascist struggle and external influences, particularly the British, in the Italian conflict fought between 1943 and 1945.
