Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Mussolini's Death March is a worthwhile read for those wanting to understand the Second World War from the perspective of the Italian army. The book is not only a window onto the wretched lives of the Italian soldiers on the Russian front, but also onto the Italian war experience in other theaters."—Journal of Military History
