Summary
A group of black American soldiers who are separated from their unit are protected from the Germans by Italian villagers. Despite the differences in their cultures and language, love triumphs over bigotry and hate.
Critique
McBride is best known for the biography The Color of Water, A Black Man's Tribute to His White Mother. Lyrically written, fictionalized account of a battle in Tuscany during WWII, which shows the triumph of love over bigotry and hate. Good choice for book discussion groups. Highly recommend.
