Online: The Savage Storm: the Battle for Italy – The National Archives

19 June @ 7:30 pm BST

Join bestselling historian James Holland to explore the brutal story of the most pivotal campaign of the Second World War.

Allied forces crossed into Southern Italy in September 1943 expecting a swift victory. Despite Italy’s surrender, fierce German resistance turned this battle into one of the most brutal of the war.

James Holland will be discussing these dark, dramatic months in unflinching detail. He has used a wealth of documents, including letters and diaries, to reveal more about this pivotal phase of the war than ever before. Follow the fighting across plains and mountains, through shattered villages and cities in intense heat and cold.

James Holland is a historian, broadcaster, and author of several bestselling histories. He has written and presented many television programmes, including for the BBC, Channel 4 and National Geographic. He presents We Have Ways of Making You Talk, a podcast about the Second World War, with Al Murray.
