Lieutenant Icardi was the Italian-American interpreter with an OSS team operating near German-occupied Milan in December 1944. The team was headed by Major William V. Holohan, who disappeared under mysterious circumstances. An Italian court later found Icardi guilty in abstentia of Holohan’s murder. Following an extradition hearing, a congressional investigation (a report of which was published), and a perjury trial, Icardi won a technical acquittal in 1956. This memoir was his defense and he relates everything that happened the night Major Holohan disappeared. There is also quite a bit of detailed information on OSS operations and on the training he underwent upon joining the OSS.
