Luftwaffe actions against Italian underground units 1944

Post by swat36 » Sat Jul 18, 2009 9:24 am

Hi,
Please I would like to know if German air force occured missions (reco, straf. bombings...) against the Italian "Résistants" (Underground units. In France we would say FFI : "Forces Françaises de l'Intérieur" + FPT : Francs Tireurs et Partisans) in Italy. That's a field of history I do not know.

Thank you

Phil.
