ITALIAN MAQUIS WOMAN FASCIST FIGHTER FROM AWAY BACK

Italy…. Although the outside world has heard little about them, there were anti-fascist guerillas fighting for freedom in Italy as far back as 1927, while Mussolini was being praised throughout the world for making Italian trains run on time. They fought Italian fascist and German Nazis alike and are still doing it. This woman school teacher is one of them. She fights side by side with her husband in the “White Patrol” among the snow-clad peaks of the French-Italian border. Monday, January 15, 1945
