Feliks Topolski: artist notes on 'Memoir of the Century' - 11 Italy
Back to Europe: desert convoys of Sikh troops on the way to the newly opened Italian camppaign. Rome liberated. Soldiers of all the Allied nations. The Pope receives the Polish Army command, led by General Anders and the little Ambassador to the Vatican, Mr Pappe; beyond, Mussolini's execution, the battlefield at Loreto with the Poles, and peasant women cowering in doorways, while higher in the mountains Italian guerrillas swagger; the German prisoners held by Canadians.
