The Second World War is vanishing into the pages of history. The veterans were once all around us, but their numbers are fast diminishing. While still in their prime many recorded their memories with Peter Hart for the Imperial War Museum. As these old soldiers now fade away their voices from the front are still strong with a rare power to bring the horrors of war back to vivid life. The 16th Durham Light Infantry were supposed to be just an 'ordinary' battalion. But their experiences as they fought their way up through Italy show that there is no such thing as 'ordinary'. They struggled to break out from Salerno, then across the countless rivers and mountain ranges that seemed to spring up to bar their way to victory. They learnt their military skills the hard way facing determined German opposition every step of the way. These were no 'D-Day Dodgers' but heroes in their own right. But there was another battle being fought as they struggled to maintain their morale day by day, as their friends died and their seemed to be no end in sight. This is their story.Peter Hart was born in 1955. After attending Liverpool University he has worked as the Oral Historian at the Imperial War Museum since 1981, He is responsible for interviewing veterans of all conflicts from the Great War to the present day. His previous books include 1918: A Very British Victory, The Somme, 1916, Aces Falling: War Above the Trenches, 1918 and Jutland, 1916. His Voices from the Front series with Pen & Sword includes, The 16th Durham Light Infantry, The 2nd Norfolk regiment and the South Notts Hussars. He is married with two children and lives in North London

The eye-openers begin on page 1 of Son of Siena, where Roberto muses, "I could not help but think what the world would be like if I did not help Italy and Germany win World War II." Thus begins the ride of a lifetime-and what a life! That life begins and ends in Siena, Italy, and winds through America and Europe at crucial moments of history during both World Wars and their pre- and post- periods, with an influence that spreads throughout the world like tentacles. Yes, those tentacles are ominous but the creature that possesses them is also blessed with great lights that pervade the entire book. Roberto is very much a man of this world, but surrounding him throughout his life are people who are devout, who would have him also take thought of the world to come. Will Roberto do that? What in this world seems more worthy of his attention, and how will he use it to achieve his grand desires? Will he be pleased with the results? In finding the answers to those questions, you will be joining Roberto and a fascinating assortment of supporting characters; and be blissfully exposed to an astonishing array of historical facts that both broaden and deepen a spiritual and intellectual odyssey undertaken by a Son of Siena. Beginning in 1896 Italy, the first half of the story flows through the history and relationships that shape Roberto's life. During these unaltered historic events, the main character eventually accumulates great wealth. After a seminal event changes Roberto fundamentally, he decides Italy needs to be the greatest of the great powers rather than the least. As Roberto begins the building of the Second Roman Empire, he attempts to remain anonymous for the safety of his family. This he believes can be accomplished by becoming Benito Mussolini's muse. Will Roberto be able to handle Mussolini? Will some parts of history not allow themselves to be altered? What will the world look like, and will it appear much different? I am a registered nurse and work in a hospital in Massachusetts. I have bachelors of science degrees in nursing and biology from the University of Massachusetts at Lowell. I am married with two children. I was born in Lowell, Massachusetts and was raised in the greater Lowell area. My job is nursing but my passion has always been history. My love of history began in my early teens and has grown since. One thing about history is that it repeats itself because fundamentally most people's motives have not changed. Whether you were a farmer in Mesopotamia or a steel worker in 1930's Germany, the need to eat, clothe yourself, and provide shelter remained paramount. The fascinating thing about people is to what extent they will go to meet those needs; and how their decisions concerning the economic and social structures, military and religious matters are affected. I have studied history for over thirty years. One day in early 2006, I was doing a dressing change on a patient. We were talking about our jobs and mutual interest in books when I mentioned my idea about writing a historic novel. After listening to me, the patient encouraged me to put the story on paper because he believed people would enjoy the book. I thought he was a kind older man, but wondered whether he knew what he was talking about. When I went home that night I googled his name to see what would come up. I was greatly surprised when all sorts of literary prizes and awards were associated with his name. The next night I began writing Son of Siena. I cannot say who the person was because he was a patient of mine, and there are privacy laws involved, though I wish I could.

Images of America: Italians of Stark County focuses on Italian immigration into Stark County beginning in the late 1800s. At the time, Stark County’s urban hub of Canton and the surrounding communities were in the middle of a thriving expansion driven by industry, transportation, and manufacturing. Along with this growth came the need for labor, with immigration filling many of those needs. Italians came to Stark County to work in the steel mills, in the coal mines, and on the railroad, as well as to start their own small businesses. Once established, Italian families began to replicate the community foundations from their native land, and in turn these foundations reinforced embedded values: family, food, religion, music, and freedom.

Through his research on the status of women in Florence and other Italian cities, Julius Kirshner helped to establish the socio-legal history of women in late medieval and Renaissance Italy and challenge the idea that Florentine women had an inferior legal position and civic status. In Marriage, Dowry, and Citizenship in Late Medieval and Renaissance Italy, Kirshner collects nine important essays which address these issues in Florence and the cities of northern and central Italy. Using a cross-disciplinary approach that draws on the methodologies of both social and legal history, the essays in this collection present a wealth of examples of daughters, wives, and widows acting as full-fledged social and legal actors. Revised and updated to reflect current scholarship, the essays in Marriage, Dowry, and Citizenship in Late Medieval and Renaissance Italy appear alongside an extended introduction which situates them within the broader field of Renaissance legal history.
