One of my favorite wartime books is Love and War in the Apennines by Eric Newby. For those that haven't read it, the author was captured and interned by the Italians during the war, escaped in the chaos of the Italian Armistice, hid about for a long time and was, eventually, recaptured by the Nazis and their RSI allies. Anyway, it got me to thinking; what was the general treatment of Allied POWs by their Italian captors? How did it compare to the Germans and Japanese? Thanks for sharing.
