The Consul based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I'm an Italian-American, and I fought in WWII in Italy. I couldn't put this book down, once I got into it. What Walter Orebaugh and his two employees, Nancy and Amy went through, and how ordinary Italian people risked their lives to help them survive, is the stuff of fiction, but this is a documented, true story of World War II. Amazing.I hear it might soon be a movie. An Italian-American producer has optioned the original hardcover, 'Guerrilla in Striped Pants' for a movie, according to co-author Carol Jose, whom I called after reading the book to tell her how great I thought it was. Every Italian-American, every American, should read this book. She says Consul Orebaugh is still living, at age 92. What an incredible man. Great book. I recommend it to all ages.
