Synopsis:

Presiding over the small Sicilian village of Adano during World War II, an Italian-American major wins the love and admiration of the natives when he searches for a replacement for the 700-year-old town bell that had been melted down for bullets by the Fascists. Although situated during one of the most devastating experiences in human history, John Hersey's story speaks with unflinching patriotism and humanity.


Review:

"The whole thing adds up to a study in the crucible of experience of 'what America can and cannot do in Europe.' As such it is very interesting and very good. It is even good as a novel with dozens of amusing characters, some of them stylized, some of them real."

Milton Hindus, Atlantic Monthly, March 1944

Review:

"This is a good book that is also a good deed. I would say that the fiction form of 'A Bell for Adano' is fictitious. This is not fiction, it is a first-rate job of war reporting."

Max Ascoli, Commonweal, 03/10/1944
