Narrated By: Will Damron

Date: May 2017

Duration: 17 hours 46 minutes


Soon to be a major television event from Pascal Pictures, starring Tom Holland.

Based on the true story of a forgotten hero, the USA Today and #1 Amazon Charts bestseller 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.

    Wonderful glimpse into such a critical time in history. I could see the story in my mind. It was clear, painful, and joyous.

    The story was good and seems to be somewhat legit but there are many parts that seem just a bit too fictional and Pino, who is this very smart/daring kid, makes supremely idiotic decisions that nobody else would. The action and adventure parts were cool while the love and family parts were just a bit too silly for me. A well off Italian boy who does countless deeds to save many people-crossing mountains and being a spy and meeting/knowing so many high profile people and falling in love and getting away with so much by simply showing official papers and surviving many crazy/dangerous moments and …. I think this book is meant for younger people or even teenagers.

    A fascinating story full of WW2 history. We listened to it as we drove the area of northern Italy and Milan

    One of the first WWII books I’ve read and it really set a high bar. I’m so grateful Mark Sullivan was able to write this book and capture the heroic efforts of Pino and his friends and family. Highly recommend.

    One of my all time favorite books! It has everything...adventure, suspense, true events, twists, and a love story.

  • Carl T.

    An in depth look at the tragedy of war and the depravity of those behind the facades of honor and patriotism. Though most feel the desire to do good and serve they are often pawns in a game that has nothing to do with noble cause.

    Loved the narrator’s voice. An intriguing and heartbreaking story of a hero in Italy during WWII but what I found more intriguing was what happened after the war.
