About this book
A Vintage Classics edition of the hugely popular 1995 novel, set during and after World War II on a Greek Island. 'A wonderful epic novel' "The Times"
It is 1941 and Captain Antonio Corelli, a young Italian officer, is posted to the Greek island of Cephallonia as part of the occupying forces. At first he is ostracised by the locals, but as a conscientious but far from fanatical soldier, whose aim is to have a peaceful war, he proves in time to be civilised, humorous - and a consummate musician.
