Beneath a Scarlet Sky by Mark Sullivan

Beneath a Scarlet Sky

Beneath a Scarlet Sky documents the true story of Pino Lella, an Italian who in World War II joined the Italian Nazi army and spies on the Nazi activities for the Resistance. It details his involvement with the resistance and the invasion of Italy by the Nazis. The book is very engaging and goes into great detail about the part of World War II that isn’t discussed much, which is Italy’s role and invasion. It also talks about the direct aftermath of the War where innocent people are punished and some of the Nazis are allowed to go free.
The book does start out a bit slow and Pino can be a little annoying early on but when it gets into the main part of the story it is amazing from then on and he matures into a more reasonable adult.
