Guido Rossi (PhD, Military History) Laurea, History, University of Milan (Italy); M.A., War & Society, University of Southern Mississippi (Hattiesburg, MS); Certificate of Public History, University of Southern Mississippi. Guido is an international student from Milan, Italy. His undergraduate thesis was an overall strategical and battle analysis of the conduct of the Italian campaign of World War II by the Allies, from the landings in Sicily until the conquest of Rome. His research now focuses on Italian-American servicemen in the U.S. Armed Forces in World War II, their war experience, and how their service influenced the integration of the Italian-American community in the American Society. His Master’s Degree thesis, “Italian Fellas in Olive Drab: Exploring the Experiences of Italian-American Servicemen in Sicily and Italy, 1943-1945” focused specifically on U.S. servicemen of Italian descent who fought in Sicily and Italy and how they perceived their own service in the land of their ancestors.
