The Resistance in Italy (Philatelic Collection)
http://www.cifr.it/Chapter_01.html External Link
A history of the Italian Resistance Movement and Partisans (Partigiani), presented with
a philatelic context; Chapter 11 (8 pages) - "The Partisan Struggle for Freedom" - and
Chapter 12 - "Women in the Resistance" - are most relevant.
One of the most intriguing stamps is shown without explanation in Chapter 1:
a 10 Lire issue printed "CLN - Italia" "Posta Partigiana". Was it a stamp issued
by the Partisan postal service honoring the Comitato di Liberazione Nazionale,
or issued by the CLN postal service for Partisan use?
The former is the apparent reading, while the latter seems the more likely.

Alternate sources usually allow reconstruction of basic 'certification of military service'
information, but not awards or unit assignments.
