“This e-book offers either with a transition from early life into formative years and with a circulation from peace to warfare: as for terribly many other folks, for the protagonist of this e-book ‘entry into existence’ and ‘entry into battle’ coincide.” — from the Author’s Note

These 3 tales, set throughout the summer time of 1940, draw on Italo Calvino’s thoughts of his personal formative years throughout the moment international battle, too younger to be compelled to struggle in Mussolini’s military yet sufficiently old to be conscripted into the Italian early life brigades. The callow narrator of those stories observes the mounting unease of a urban girding itself for warfare, the looting of an occupied French city, and evening revels in the course of a blackout. showing the following in its first English translation, Into the War is certainly one of Calvino’s simply works of autobiographical fiction. It deals either a glimpse of this writer’s outstanding existence and a distilled dram of his wry, inventive literary voice.

“All 3 tales attest to the very likely magical, transformative area of formative years . . . The seeds of the later Calvino — the fabulist who labored profound ethical and moral issues into his narratives — are all here.” — Joseph Luzzi, Times Literary Supplement
