Books Description :
Review 'A book by an ex—soldier that deals with the Americans in Itlay and that displays unmistakable talent…Mr. Burns shows the novelist’s specific gift in a brilliant way.' — Edmund Wilson'Burns has a brilliant facility for reproducing the sights, sounds, color, feel, and smell of the places he has seen.
