%The book is about WWII and recounts with details and realism the suffering of an entire village population north of Cassino during the frigid months of 1943-1944, forced by the Germans to evacuate with their children and aging parents, without much food and clothing, likely to die by a bullet, starvation, or freezing in a mountainside. It is a true story of tragic events afflicting innocent people, living in caves and huts pervious to rain and hardly protective against the bitter winter, and also a historical and human account that reveals the true nature and instinct of people while risking their lives for survival every day. It exposes the unsung tragedy of civilians in a ravaging war as lived by a ten-year-old for nine months.
