The Reluctant Patriot

The first riveting work in Bernardi’s two book series!

Bernardi’s first book, “The Reluctant Patriot: An Italian Tragedy”, is a richly woven history of a good people changed; a powerful cautionary story about the grand opera of politics where, throughout the ages, maestros are changed but the music remains the same … always the same.

Based upon his research of letters and extensive original conversations with family members and friends living in the United States and several small villages in the Italian Apennine Mountains, the author weaves a unique story of love, hope and patriotism of family members and friends who became casualties of Fascism, the German occupation, partisan raids and the reprisals carried out by both sides.
