Welcome to the website of the book A Travel Guide to World War II Sites in Italy: Museums, Monuments, and Battlegrounds (2nd edition, 2016).
This updated and expanded edition describes about two hundred WWII monuments, museums, cemeteries, deportation camps, massacre sites, and battlegrounds in their historical context. These sites are grouped into nineteen tours that begin in Sicily and end in Trieste. The tours vary in length and can be done separately.
For each location, GPS coordinates are provided. In addition, the book's appendix has excerpts from the journal of an American officer held captive in Italian POW camps for about a year.
Below are links to book reviews and purchasing information. Some Amazon sites offer the "Look Inside" feature, which shows the book's detailed table of contents:
Please note that the first edition, which had a red/green cover and was published in 2010, did not cover Sicily and is no longer being printed. However, some vendors still offer the first edition at an inflated price.
