This book was another win on the Goodreads giveaway. I am not a usual history buff but i found this book so interesting. While reading this book it made me so grateful to having been born at the end of the war. Thousands and upon thousands of men,women and children were killed by the Germans. The Jewish people weren't the only ones sent to camps and destroyed but Hitler appears to have even went after the destroying Italy. It was in 1943 when the Italians thought they would be treated better by ...more

Some members of my family were involved in the Italian Resistance and I was more than happy when I got this ARC.
It's well researched and the explanations of what happened is detailed and clear.
I loved to read the story of these women and I'm more than happy that their names are remembered.
It was a book that moved me, highly recommended.
Many thanks to the publisher and Edelweiss for this ARC, all opinions are mine

Very interesting and well researched book. It is based on the experiences of four female friends who were active in the resistance in and around Turin. The book has a detailed narrative of events in that area from Mussolini's fall in 1943 to the post war period. The book ends sadly. Some familiar writers who were based in Turin, Primo Levi, Natalia Ginzburg, Oriana Fallaci, are mentioned.
