The great war has heroes. The protagonists are not Kings, emperors, generals. Are foot soldiers and peasants: our grandparents. Aldo Cazzullo recounts the conflict ' 15-18 on the Italian front, alternating stories of men and women: the histories of our families. Because the war is the beginning of freedom for women, that can do the same things: men working in the factory, driving trams, graduate, teaching.

The story of Red Cross nurses, prostitutes, bearers, spies, sent to war, even female soldiers in disguise, cross those of alpini, arditi, prisoners, poets in arms, great characters and other strangers.
