The story takes place in the last two years of the second world war Fey von Hassell the protagonist of the book lives in Friuli in North Eastern Italy The region is the theatre for fierce fighting between the Allied and Axis forces and is in the grip of a civil war From this beginning the story moves to Germany which is fast yielding to Russian and Allied forces pushing in on all fronts In a balanced restrained yet evocative fashion Catherine Bailey outlines these complicated historical events and the social environs in which Fey von Hassell moves From orderly tensed but still civilized the story turns dramatic and brutal Catherine Bailey with masterfully placed strokes delivers a fair complete and insightful portrait of the protagonist She uses Fey s own voice from letters diary entries and memoirs to reveal her feelings In so doing Catherine Bailey deeply involves the reader in the pain suffering and emotional turmoil that Fey has to withstand This book is a reminder of the catastrophic conseuences that fascist ideologies have had and can have in European history It is also a reminder of the ultimate sacrifice that millions of people symbolically personified in the story in Fey s father Ulrich underwent to hand us the liberal democracies we now live in Ultimately what makes this a must read book is Catherine Bailey s fine and vivid prose It is her prose that brings the story to life transposing the reader right into the unfolding of events

READ & DOWNLOAD â The Lost Boys RMoving from a palazzo in the heart of the Italian countryside to the horrors of Buchenwald Catherine Bailey tells an extraordinary story of resistance at the heart of the Second World War The Lost Boys is an illuminating and devastating account of great personal sacrifice of loss and above all of defiance. Hard pressed to read a moving historical book all year and if I could I would give it 10 stars A remarkable tale of loss courage the patriarch former ambassador to Italy is one of the main conspirators in the July 20 Plot to assassinate Hitler perseverance maltreatment and heartbreaking love story between the mother of the boys and the one survivng von Stauffenberg brother Whilst the treatment of the valued prisoners whom Himmler thought he could use as bargaining chips in his desperation to save his own skin is pretty dire as they are carted from one appalling concentration camp to another the description of their train ride from East Prussia and the plight of the refugees who have to walk is especially striking but nothing compared to what is taking place elsewhere in the campthe guards who smile at them and give them special treatment are sociopathic monsters once they pass through the door to the part of the camp that houses the Jews homosexuals Roma etcthe nihilistic character of the Nazis is portrayed brilliantly as they go to the wire with no let up in their brutality even with the Allies closing in Superbly written and chapeau to the author for coming upon this compelling story really impressive Is there a happy endingwell everything is relative given what goes before itand for you to find outno spoilers here my dears
