Welcome to the website of A Travel Guide to World War II Sites in Italy: Museums, Monuments, and Battlegrounds. This book describes over 100 sites related to the events of World War II in Italy. Many of the monuments honor the Allied troops that fought in Italy from 1943 to 1945. Others pay tribute to the actions of the Italian Resistance and the sufferings of civilians. To see the complete table of contents, visit the book's Amazon site and click on "Look Inside."
This website supplements the book with:
descriptions of WWII sites visited by the author after the book was published in 2010 (sites in Prato, Sommocolonia, Aliano, and Bari)
Author Anne Saunders is working on a second edition of the guidebook, to which she is adding chapters on the Allied landings in Sicily and at Salerno. This edition should be available by 2018 (and perhaps sooner).
