During World War II resistance movements arose in all countries occupied by fascist and Nazi forces. Many people are startled to learn that there was a resistance movement in Italy. Most accounts by American scholars concentrate on the resistance in Central and Northern Italy and summarily dismiss the South. For Love and Country has as it's focus the resistance movement in Lazio and in particular Rome.
