The Lost and the Loyal by Nicholas DeRosa

The Lost and the Loyal by Nicholas DeRosa

A family, living in the rural hills of Naples, is subjected to the German siege during the final years of the Italian Campaign of World War Two. Enzo, the patriarch of the family, tries desperately to provide for his wife and children though their troubles worsen with every passing day. The German occupiers grow more violent and inflict strict laws on the populous as the Allies make their way to the port of Naples. The story is seen through the eyes of Ettore, the family dog. Ettore watches his family struggle to overcome sadness, battle starvation, and avoid being killed as the final days leading up to the infamous Four Days of Naples erupt in conflict and they are caught between the German police state and the Allied invasion of Italy.
