In Rome - City In Terror, Victor Failmezger retells the story of the harrowing days leading up to the Allied liberation of Rome in 1944. Between partisan warfare against the hated Nazi occupiers and the constant stream of escaped Allied prisoners-of-war, scrambling towards freedom along the Escape Line, Failmezger vividly reveals that Rome was far from the quiet Open City it was purported to be. If you want something to read while waiting for the COVID lockdown to end, this is the book!

Victor Failmezger's passion for the city of Rome is matched by his extensive knowledge of its dark recent past.
