I am listening to this audio book, with my Amazon Fire tablet – and enjoying it immensely. The title is misleading – it is about the adventures of a 17-year old boy in WWII, in Italy. Who went through more than any boy should of.
The Italians made the huge mistake of following Benito Mussolini (as some American poets did, also). Some of them, however formed a resistance movement, that has been forgotten – by everyone, including the Italians – and this book tries to revive this history.
