While waiting to join the fight, Lello joins an underground railroad helping Jews escape over the Alps, guiding hundreds of Jews to safety in a year. On his 18th birthday, Lello is forced to enlist with the German Army, and is immediately assigned as a personal driver to Adolf Hitler’s left hand, General Hans Leyers. This fly on the wall in the upper echelons of the Third Reich positions him to be recruited by the Allies as a spy. Known to Allied Intelligence only as “Observer,” Lella endures the horrors of WWII and the Nazi occupation by secretly feeding intel to the Allies that was strategically important enough to turn the tides of the war. When Lella’s courage falters, he is bolstered by his love for a young woman named Anna, and for the life he dreams they will one day share.

  1. Cate Blanchett seems to be EVERYWHERE these days! Not that I'm complaining, you understand.

    I'm looking forward to Tom Holland in the WW2 movie. I just saw him in "Spider-Man: Homecoming" but was not as impressed as I thought I was going to be. I still think Tobey Maguire was the best Spidey ever.
