Diary of Writing of Italy’s Sorrow

NARA, College Park, February 28, 2006
Spent the day at NARA and found some really good OSS files.  The OSS recruited a number of Italians as agents.  Most were then sent to join a ‘mission’, a bit like the networks that SOE operated in France.  Anyway, I managed to come across the debriefings of these various agents and their missions.  Some were fairly brief, but others were very detailed, including the files of the ‘Zucca’ mission.  It’s always exciting coming across new material like this, especially when it was very clear no-one had looked at these files in decades.  I also found a number files relating to the Judge Advocate of the US 5th Army, which look interesting.
