In the night of October 30th 1940 the Tenente di Vascello Gino Birindelli, the first man to enter the English Naval base of Gibraltar, started a mission who became almost legendary for Italian Navy. The author tells us the details of this story.
Admiral Birindelli intended not to write an easy story, but to tell us his moral considerations on the human condition during war times, and mostly about the military sense of honour and duty. This could be a book for “connoisseurs”.
