      According to the newspapers of the day, it was a German defensive campaign tactic to destroy towns in the path of the allies. Belgian commandos of the British 8th army liberated SPA after its destruction according to what I have read thus far. I shall continue to research the topic as I hope to create a story line surrounding SPA's last days and destruction.
      Thanks for any info you can garner for me.
      Arthur

      Arthur,
      I think it was the Allied Forces the destroyed the town to dislodge the German Forces. I recently came across a video on the battle of San Pietro. It was a documentary.

      Hi Mark;
      After viewing the SPA photos of the Church and Monument and learning of these videos, I think that I should begin researching how the Nazis destroyed our ancestral town. I believe that there is a story to be written. Could you guide me to sources, names and places in the SPA area where I might get some historic materials upon which to base my story. One of our members, a cousin by the way, William Colianni was a boy in SPA when the Allied troops liberated SPA. He has told me his story several years ago.
       
      Thanks:
      Arthur Colaianni

      Ben Lariccia sent me these links. I had not seen these SPA videos before but I thought you would like to see them.
