"Brigate Rosse: Far-left Guerillas in Italy, 1970-1988" by David Francois

In the decades following the Second World War, Italy was continually shaken by political and social unrest, reaching a fever pitch during the anni di piombo – years of lead – between from the late 1960s through the 1980s. In an effort to counter organized crime, right-wing movements, and a desire to have Italy removed from NATO, leftist groups created a revolutionary movement through guerrilla-style tactics which became known as the Red Brigades. As this movement spread throughout Italy, more intense actions of violence took place such as high profile kidnappings of judges and other political leaders, the most infamous of these being the kidnapping of Aldo Morro. With research from both official documentation and firsthand experience of those who lived and participated at this time, Brigate Rosse: Far-left Guerillas in Italy is an imperative text for those looking for a deep study of this dark time in Italian history.
