The astute observations of a newspaperman on a fateful year in Italian history: the defeat in North Africa, invasion of southern Italy, fall of Mussolini and the German occupation of Rome. Special attention is given to events in the latter city and to gossip about relations between the Italian Government, the Nazis and the Allies.
