    Inhaltsangabe

    Soon to be a major television event from Pascal Pictures, starring Tom Holland.

    Based on the true story of a forgotten hero, the USA Today and #1 Amazon Charts bestseller Beneath a Scarlet Sky is the triumphant, epic tale of one young man’s incredible courage and resilience during one of history’s darkest hours.

    Pino Lella wants nothing to do with the war or the Nazis. He’s a normal Italian teenager - obsessed with music, food, and girls - but his days of innocence are numbered. When his family home in Milan is destroyed by Allied bombs, Pino joins an underground railroad helping Jews escape over the Alps, and falls for Anna, a beautiful widow six years his senior.

    In an attempt to protect him, Pino’s parents force him to enlist as a German soldier - a move they think will keep him out of combat. But after Pino is injured, he is recruited at the tender age of eighteen to become the personal driver for Adolf Hitler’s left hand in Italy, General Hans Leyers, one of the Third Reich’s most mysterious and powerful commanders.

    Now, with the opportunity to spy for the Allies inside the German High Command, Pino endures the horrors of the war and the Nazi occupation by fighting in secret, his courage bolstered by his love for Anna and for the life he dreams they will one day share.

    Fans of All the Light We Cannot See, The Nightingale, and Unbroken will enjoy this riveting saga of history, suspense, and love.

    Fesselnd

    Mitreißend von Anfang bis Ende! Super intensiv und emotional! Viel zu kurzweilig! Ein Buch, das lange nachhallt!

    One of the best books ever. Simply a must.

    A well told story of an impressive life. It leaves you wondering how somebody could have lived a life like this.

    Phenomenal account of an extraordinary life

    While the characters seemed a bit flat during the first few chapters, the story really took on after that. I could not stop listening to the (often heartbreaking) account of Pino Lellas experiences during WWII - his acts of bravery (e.g. guiding Jews across the border to Switzerland) and the hardships and acts of violence, injustice and cruelty he endured.

    Though I've read quite a few World War II survivor accounts, listening to Italy's role in the war being described from an Italian point of view gave different and new insights.

    At the same time, this is an inspiring life story and the book has stayed on my mind for days, even after finishing it.
