DescriptionIt is 1941 and Captain Antonio Corelli, a young Italian officer, is posted to the Greek island of Cephallonia as part of the occupying forces. At first he is ostracised by the locals, but as a conscien-tious but far from fanatical soldier, whose main aim is to have a peaceful war, he proves in time to be civilised, humorous - and a consumate musician. When the local doctor's daughter's letters to her fiance go unanswered, the working of the eternal triangle seems inevitable. But can this fragile love survive as a war of bestial savagery gets closer and the lines are drawn between invader and defender?

"As a big fan of Greece I was naturally attracted to this story, and agree that it is far more rewarding than the film, for anyone who is capable of feeling emotion.
It reminded a little of that other fine tale set in the Greek islands: Nobble Hospital of the Aegean by Paul Judges, though that is much more contemporary." by a Book Depository customer
