In the late summer of 1943, Italy broke with the Germans and joined the Allies after suffering catastrophic military losses, and an Italian Resistance was born. The bloody civil war that ensued pitted neighbor against neighbor, and revealed the best and worst in Italian society. What made the Partisans all the more extraordinary, suggests the author of A Bold and Dangerous Family, was the number of women who swelled their ranks. Drawing on a rich cache of previously untranslated sources, Caroline Moorehead tells the incredible true story of four young Piedmontese women—Ada, Frida, Silvia and Bianca—living secretly in the mountains surrounding Turin, willingly risking their lives to overthrow Italy's authoritarian government.
