Taranto to Trieste - following the 2nd New Zealand Division in Italy

From Sunday Morning, 11:32 am on 8 December 2019

Kiwi author Jennifer Mallinson only ever intended to spend a year or so in Italy, in the early 1970s but she fell in love with it and spent her life there. She began to wonder what happened to the 14,000 New Zealand soldiers who arrived in Italy in 1944 and spent 20 months fighting in Italy's mountainous areas. Her book From Taranto to Trieste follows that path.
