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.
