Abstract

Bill Bunbury's latest published history, Rabbits and Spaghetti, derives from a series of three ABC Radio National features on Italo-Australian internment and war experiences. It has evolved from that into four discrete studies: of Italian war time internment in Australia, the experiences of Italian POWs in Australia and of Australian POWs in Italy, and a study of Australians on the run in Italy, many fighting alongside Italian Partisans. These four sections are complemented by a moving postscript concerning life after the war for these particular men and their families.
