Beneath a Scarlet Sky - Mark T. Sullivan - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of Beneath a Scarlet Sky:

The secrets and sacrifices of Pino Lella's WWII service.

My favorite Pino Lella quote from the book:

"Life is change, constant change, and unless we are lucky enough to find comedy in it, change is nearly always a drama, if not a tragedy."

Questions to ponder while reading Beneath a Scarlet Sky:

What type of "service to one's enemies" is appropriate during a war?

How should one treat one's enemies?

My review of the book:

A totally engrossing story that was based upon true events.

A look into the often-overlooked WWII Italian Front.

I wish the knowledge of the Catholic Underground was more widespread.
