"Although celebrated by Hemingway in A Farewell to Arms, the Italian front in the First World War has been relatively neglected in literature. And yet some of the fiercest fighting of the war took place in the Alps between the Italian army and the forces of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Over 500,000 Italians were killed or wounded in the war, yet this is the only autobiographical novel of note to have emerged. Although it has been largely forgotten, Sardinian Brigade is a masterpiece of war literature, written with classic, even sparse, simplicity. Recounting the daily life of the soldiers at the front, the cumulative picture is unforgettable. An intelligent, powerfully moving book on a great and tragic theme. Emilio Lussu was a highly decorated officer in the Sardinian Sassari brigade, the most famous infantry of the Italian army. After the war, he became a leader of the Italian resistance to Mussolini and a socialist senator in Italy's postwar parliament."--

Homer’s King Nestor of “sandy Pylas” passes from legend into history in this first volume of the report of excavations on a hill called Englianos in Messenia, conducted by the Archaeological Expedition of the University of Cincinnati. The palace with its contents and the surrounding lower town indicate that this was an administrative center and the capital of a prosperous Mycenaean kingdom. The name Pylos appears on more than fifty tablets, and there can be no doubt that this was the Messenian abode of the Nestor of Greek tradition. Destroyed by fire at the end of the 13th century B.C., and never reoccupied, the palace has lain for more than 3,000 years in ruins. During the annual campaigns of the Expedition between 1952 and 1964, it emerged as a complex of four separate structures of considerable size. The floors, stumps of wall bearing plaster with painted decorations, doorways, and other evidence helped to identify gateways, courts, porticoes, vestibules, corridors, a great throne room, storerooms, a wine magazine, pantries filled with pottery, a bathroom, stairways, and a repair shop. Except for the tablets, seals, and frescoes, which will be described in other volumes, all the finds are recorded and illustrated with plans, drawings, and photographs.Originally published in 1966.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.
