A documentary film about Middletown resident Max Corvo and his service in the OSS in Italy during World War II.

The story of a young Sicilian immigrant who, after coming to America and becoming Americanized, joins the Army before World War II and becomes the Chief of Operations of Secret Intelligence of the American Office of Strategic Services in Italy during the Allied campaign in Italy from 1943 to 1945. The young Sicilian is Biagio ‘Max’ Corvo, originally from Melilli, Sicily. He immigrated to the United States in 1929 at the age of nine, with his mother, brother and sister to join their father, Cesare, who was forced to leave the island, six years before because he was persecuted by the Fascist regime.
