Norman Lewis’s groundbreaking book about Naples in the wake of the Nazi occupation is a spellbinding narrative of triumphs and tragedies in war-torn Italy

As a young man assigned to Italy with the British Intelligence Corps in 1944, Norman Lewis witnessed the city’s turbulent recovery from the war after its liberation from the Nazi occupation. Lewis writes in striking detail about the Neapolitan people and the effects of World War II on their everyday lives.

Devastating, poignant, and occasionally humorous, Naples ’44 is a captivating read that brings to vivid life the struggles and resilience of one culture—as well as the punishing effects of war. Based on Lewis’s diary from that time, the book offers both the passionate rendering of daily life in Naples and an unforgettable look at this uniquely formative time in the history of Italy—and the world.
