I highly recommend it! Local peeps, you can find it our church library.
The story followed the war from Naples, to Rome, through Tuscany and on to Florence. In 2005 Rich and I were privileged to visit Italy with a tour group of Westmont College alumni and parents. We did not visit Naples, but we visited the other places mentioned in the book. Here are some of our photos from those places. Pieces of art are beyond description!
Views of Rome from the Vatican.
Art in Vatican Museum.
Colosseum Arch of Constatine.
Arch of Septimus.
Views of Tuscany.
Florence Duomo Complex.
Thankfully there were those of the Greatest Generation willing to risk their lives for the art and culture of this marvelous country!
