KIRKUS REVIEW

The memoirs of a German anti-fascist in Italy, which is personal and evenly exciting reading. After helping legally, some 250 men to get out of concentration camps in Italy, S. K. was quietly hustled out of the country. He went to Italy, where under the patronage of a wealthy Fascistic friend, he established himself as a woman chaser and dilettante, and under this alias pursued his work for the Underground. He was in a key position to pick up incidental information. Stories of his always apprehensive activities, making forbidden trips, deluding the police, dodging the Gestapo. Italy pictured today, indifferent in its nationalism, its Fascism, a weak flank, unlikely to revolt until Hitler is defeated from outside. Good reading.
