ABSTRACT
The article presents a profile of Guiseppena Bellandi. It notes that Bellandi starved and had experienced terror when the Nazi soldiers of the Schutzstaffel invaded her hometown of Pistoia, Italy. When she turned nineteen, she boarded the ship from Naples bound for New York and was made war bride to American soldier Harry Jolly, her ticket away from the war. While being married to Jolly, Bellandi lived in a shack in Ash Fork and chicken coop in Phoenix. After arriving to Needles, California, Bellandi divorced Jolly, noting that he was not mentally retarded, just very slow. Further discussed is Bellandi's marriage to her second husband, newspaperman Lee Perry.
