This is a great read. Novelization of the WW2 exploits of Pino Lella, who starts out a member of the Italian Resistance smuggling Jews into Switzerland,  and after his parents force him to join the Wehrmacht for safety,  becomes the personal driver for General Leyers, who reports to Hitler. 

 

So he becomes a spy for the Allies.

 

Pino is a real guy (still living), and while there is no navy, great insights into life during wartime,  the Italian Resistance,  and the German High Command. Good stuff.
