Beneath A Scarlet Sky

This historical novel is based on real life event.  It opens with Pino, 17 years of age, living in Italy.  He is full of life, curiosity and excitement.  At the end of the novel, we still see Pino, now 93 years of age, living in the United Statess and he has a story that he is finally able to tell our author. With impeccable research, the author paints the true picture of the Italian Resistance during the late days of World War !!.  People who truly existed on both sides of the war are aptly described along with the horrors and tragedies of that era.

I enjoyed this book as I had little knowledge of the ways in which the Italians dealt with Hitler and Mussolini.
