Captivating World War II Book is the Story of a Ten Year Old Italian Boy Who Finds Himself Struggling for Survival – Based on a True Life Story

Xlibris, the world’s leading print-on-demand self-publishing services provider, announced today the release of Innocent War, an engaging World War II book authored by Susan Violante.

Set in 1940, Innocent War is the story of Salvatore, Maria, little Gina, and their first born son, Nino. They were an ordinary family building a life in the Italian colonies in Tripoli, Libya. Nino, as a proud Balilla, believed they were direct descendants of the Romans. It was all a lie.

One day Nino woke up to his regular routine, but by the end of the day his life had changed into a nightmare…an adventure through Nino’s eyes.

Innocent War is an adventure that emphasizes a child’s viewpoint of the war through hardship, drama and awakening. It will be featured at this year’s American Library Association Annual book exhibit, which will be held on June 25 to 28, 2010 at Washington, DC. Readers who wish to order a copy of this book are encouraged to visit Innocent War – Now Available, call (888) 795-4274 or send an email to today.
