An enchanting memoir of one English girl's wartime adventures—so true to life you cannot help but fall in love with Italy alongside herWhen Lucy Addey became one of the Auxiliary Territorial Service (ATS) Girls in Khaki, she hardly imagined that she would end up eating ice cream a stone's throw from the Roman forum. Her story is of a love affair with the Italian landscape and its people. Yet her Italy is not without its adventures, from her erstwhile admirer and would-be archaeologist Jimmy gifting her a landmine to be used as coffee table, to her harrowing journeys through the Italian countryside revealing Nazi atrocities against the men and women who had bravely sheltered Allied soldiers. Lucy's incredible resilience and indomitable sense of fun runs like a golden thread throughout the book. It is impossible not to get caught up in her stories of humor and tragedy, and not to fall in love with her Italy.
