Summary
Mussolini was not only ruthless; he was subtle and manipulative. Black-shirted thugs did his dirty work for him: arson, murder, destruction of homes and offices, bribery, and intimidation. His opponents - including editors, publishers, union representatives, lawyers, and judges - were beaten into submission. But the tide turned in 1924, when his henchmen went too far; horror spread across Italy, and twenty years of struggle began. Anti-fascist resistance was born and it would end only with Mussolini's death in 1945. Among those whose disgust hardened into bold and uncompromising resistance was a family from Florence: Amelia, Carlo, and Nello Rosselli
Summary
Examines the lives of Amelia, Carlo, and Nello Rosselli, an Italian family from Florence who opposed Mussolini and became leaders of an anti-fascist movement.
