About the Book

In 1961, homosexuality is a crime punishable by up to seventeen years in prison. That doesn't stop soldiers Philip Greco and John Fitzgerald from falling in love.

The two men are serving in the US Army in Germany during the Berlin Crisis. They become friends at first, and then slowly and tentatively, their relationship blossoms. Working around the obstacles in their path, Philip and John travel through Europe together and discover their dream place to live after their discharge, Majorca. When John is discharged four months earlier than Philip, the latter convinces him to return to the States. But when Philip arrives in Los Angeles, he finds John’s life has changed dramatically since they parted. Now Philip must find his way in the world and see whether he can build a dream life of his own.

"Wow, what a great read! Love and sex in the army as never before told. Europe at the time when La Dolce Vita was the lifestyle. I knew the author in his days in Rome. Wow again!"
--Carroll Baker, Oscar nominee for Baby Doll.
