The year was 1943 and Captain Miller had been in captivity for over a year. Italian anti-fascists harboured and fed him, first in a remote mountain village, then in Rome itself. For months he posed as a deaf-mute and member of the Fascist Youth in order to dodge German patrols and the Italian secret police - until the Allied liberation of Rome brought GIs flooding onto the streets.

Not Much Happens
The author’s story was not very remarkable. He hid out with a very brave and kind Italian family. Would have been more meaningful with a more extensive look at the war.
