Item description for Wolf on the Mountain by Anthony Paul...
Wolf on the Mountain is a story set in wartime Italy. In December 1943 the Germans attack a partisan camp in the Abruzzo mountains behind the Cassino battle-line and one man, a fugitive British prisoner-of-war, escapes. Captain Robert Johnson becomes Roberto DiGiovanni, an Italian peasant who can move as a local in the snowbound mountains protected by the communist underground. They endure manhunts and reprisals, informers and treachery, political manoeuvring between communists and fascist sympathisers, bombing raids and growing famine as modern warfare takes its toll on a poor farming community. Everybody is forced to adapt. The communist and fascist families who protect him, the daughter of the fascist family who falls in love with him, the doctor who attends his wounds, the village priest and the proud peasants have to adapt their loyalties in order to survive. But can these new loyalties endure?
