Could you please check if these disconnected sentences are possible? Thank you, Writeacher.

1)Italy sided with Germany (aslo allied with Germany) and declared war on the Western Powers.
2) Can I replace Italy with "she"?
Example: Italy was invaded by the Allies in 1943.
3) Bomber raids ..... on London and other important cities. (I need a synonym for "continued")
4) Margaret Thatcher limited Trade Union power.
The Suffragettes campaigned for recognition for women's right to vote.
5) He tries to justify her behaviour by saying that he didn't want to do her any harm.
6) She faints. When she comes to (also to herself?), the housekeeper is at her side.
7) She broke the door open/She broke open the door.

    It's fine as is.

    2) Can I replace Italy with "she"?
    Example: Italy was invaded by the Allies in 1943.
    Yes, you can do that if you wish.

    3) Bomber raids ..... on London and other important cities. (I need a synonym for "continued")
    The verb "persisted" should work.

    4) Margaret Thatcher limited trade union power.
    The suffragettes campaigned for recognition for women's right to vote.
    Only if there's a formal group called Trade Union or a formal group called Suffragettes would you need capital letters there. Otherwise, these sentences are fine.

    5) OK

    6) She faints. When she comes to, the housekeeper is at her side.

    7) She broke the door open/She broke open the door.
    The second phrasing is better.
