Melanie Hughes' book, War Changes Everything, based on a family archive, is the true story of two remarkable women. Through their eyes we see the vibrant, often polarised, Italian community in London during this turbulent era and its profound impact on the world of ideas and political thought. By interweaving national events with personal recollection Nadia and Melanie paint a vivid picture of these tumultous times and those who lived through them.
