Overview

The author was a young intelligence officer when the Allies occupied Naples late in 1943. He kept a diary of his experiences and 30 years later published it as this story.

It plunges us into the heart of a city devastated by war: hunger and plague stalk the streets; mothers turn prostitute for food, soap or cigarettes; black markets are a way of life. Even nature goes haywire: Vesuvius erupts.

Through it all, the Neapolitans -- ingenuous, indomitable, full of life, in the midst of death -- adapt, and survive. NAPLES `44 is above all a tribute to their spirit, and their city.
