In 2012, the firm Garfagnana Editrice published a new edition of La Battaglia di Sommocolonia, a book that describes the long history of that village in western Tuscany. About half the text concerns a December 1944 battle in which an American officer sacrificed his life for his fellow soldiers. This 2012 edition includes an English translation by Anne Saunders (with the title The Battle of Sommocolonia). The book's authors are Dario Giannini and Vittorio Biondi.
