    Naples '44 PDF/EPUB Ð Ebook naples pdf, Naples '44Naples '44 KindleIt was quite a different sort of autobiographical account to read the daily diary entries of Norman Lewis about his experiences as a U.K intelligence officer in Naples when he was stationed there for a year just after the Germans left in 1944 It was fascinating to read how he had to deal with all the plundering, bribery and prostitution in the city People were starving and would do anything in their power to get food and protect their families Lewis certainly dealt with all the turmoil in a surprisingly relaxed and humorous way As he notes, only 1 4 of all the Allied shipments, whether food or equipment, arrived at their proper destination and army equipment is widely sold in the Naples street markets He note

    Naples '44 PDF/EPUB Ð Ebook naples pdf, Naples '44Naples '44 KindleHarrowing, unsparing, penetrating yet throughout profoundly humane this reminiscence restores the good name of memoir NAPLES 44 details, via diary entries no doubt reworked for the book s mid 1970s publication, Norman Lewis experience as a community liaison between the Allied occupiers and the locals, in the devastated Southern Italian metropolis of Naples following the Nazi withdrawal of September 1943 Every entry offers a bracing corrective to dimwitted American notions of the good war, yet each is suffused as well with a respect for Naples and the Neapolitans, all the genuine for how its thoroughly informed Lewis comprehends the full complexity of an urban environment raked by millennia of exploitation he admires the city dwellers keen eye for the lesser evil, rooted in their sighing awareness that evil will insinuate itself into every corner bar and city block NAPLES 44 has stayed

    Naples '44 PDF/EPUB Ð Ebook naples pdf, Naples '44Naples '44 KindleDisclaimer I got a copy via Netgalley Have you ever read the transcripts from the Titanic inquiry It s a rather interesting look at what various British people thought of the rest of the barbarians, except for the Americans In some places, Lewis diary of his wartime experiences in Naples mirror those transcripts, but this time the Americans are part of the barbarians One of the most interesting parts of reading this diary is how slowly, subtlety Lewis views change He eventually falls in love with the country and reading those passages is true wonderful His most descriptive work in the diary is there Part of this change might be ti

    Naples '44 PDF/EPUB Ð Ebook naples pdf, Naples '44Naples '44 KindleThis is a fine book, accurate daily participation in history with the addition of Lewis s fine irony For example, put in charge of Naples security by the Allies, he is given the same offices the Germans had with all their files The persons reporting to German security, snitching on their neighbors, were the same ones who reported to Norman Lewis His account of the workings

    Naples '44 PDF/EPUB Ð Ebook naples pdf, Naples '44Naples '44 KindleA classic I m surprised it took me so long to get around to reading it Norman Lewis writes like an angel, and describes the medieval squalor and suffering of Naples in 1944 with a strange, detached irony that belies the horrors and injustices he describes At the same time, he manages to develop a genuine affection and respect for the venal, superstitious, and devious Neapolitans This world, and Lewis s calm curiosity about it, seems very remote from ours We were admiring the splendid husk of the Temple of Neptune when the war came to us in the shape of a single
