This well-researched novel explores what happened to the author’s father and uncle while serving in the Italian Army and Navy. As a naval intelligence officer, Alberto was in Rome and privy to the most dangerous secrets of the war. His brother Vittorio, wounded at Tobruk in Libya, was sent to a British POW camp in India, where he remained until the end of 1946 because he refused to join the same anti-fascist side as his brother. The two brothers didn’t know about each other’s fate for the duration of the war and made different choices, often with tragic consequences.
