As a nation state, Italy has emerged only in 1871. Until then the country was politically divided into a large number of independant cities, provinces and islands. The currently available evidences point out to a dominant Etruscan, Greek and Roman cultural influence on today's Italians.
Does anyone know of a book or website that lists the approximate numbers of Italian POWs that were incarcerated in different parts of the world during WWII? For instance, how many were in the US, the UK, the Soviet Union, Australia, India, Kenya, etc.? I have found approximate numbers for some of those nations, but would like to get more information. Thanks!
Interested in the surnames Liberati and Gulfo. Also interested in Italy during World War II.
