Overview

Based on the true story of a forgotten hero, Beneath a Scarlet Sky is the triumphant, epic tale of one young man’s incredible courage and resilience during one of history’s darkest hours. Pino Lella wants nothing to do with the war or the Nazis. He’s a normal Italian teenager—obsessed with music, food, and girls—but his days of innocence are numbered. When his family home in Milan is destroyed by Allied bombs, Pino joins an underground railroad helping Jews escape over the Alps, and falls for Anna, a beautiful widow six years his senior.

In an attempt to protect him, Pino’s parents force him to enlist as a German soldier—a move they think will keep him out of combat. But after Pino is injured, he is recruited at the tender age of eighteen to become the personal driver for Adolf Hitler’s left hand in Italy, General Hans Leyers, one of the Third Reich’s most mysterious and powerful commanders. Now, with the opportunity to spy for the Allies inside the German High Command, Pino endures the horrors of the war and the Nazi occupation by fighting in secret, his courage bolstered by his love for Anna and for the life he dreams they will one day share.

Fans of All the Light We Cannot See, The Nightingale, and Unbroken will enjoy this riveting saga of history, suspense, and love.

such an excellent story in such an awful time in history. i could not stop listening!!!! Mark Sullivan is a fantastic fact finder, story weaver, bringing to life the sorrows of that era. May we never repeat them ..... Matthew 6:9&20 Let thy kingdom come . The narrator was superb. To make a story great the narrator has to bring it to life. Will Damron did so in an excellent manor . thank you

This is a fantastic book! It starts a little slow, but then quickly picks up the pace with unimaginable twists and turns throughout. Hard to imagine so many experiences in one young life. The narrator is also excellent!

Such an incredible book, I was absolutely addicted to listening every night before bed. Many late nights with this one as once I started it was hard to stop. Just heartbreaking at times, but such a powerful story.

The book was OK. Difficilt to believe in parts and overly dramatized or sensationalized in others. The reader was not good. Very sing song voice and terrible pronunciation on Italian words.
