After being released from an Italian prison, British officer Eric Newby (Blue) must find his way out of Italy before the Germans come. However, he is injured on the way and is left behind from his fellow soldiers. He is helped out by the local Italians, and he meets Wanda (Bobulova), a beautiful local girl who helps him learn Italian so that he can escape. Their friendship slowly blossoms into quite a strong and close genuine romance. But with the Germans looking for Eric, they are kept apart from one another, not knowing what will happen to them.
Based on Eric Newby's autobiographical story of his wartime experiences in Italy, 'In Love and War' is a tale of how a young English soldier meets and falls in love with a lovely young Italian woman, Wanda, in a small Italian town in the Apennines.
The movie is a wonderful evocation of life in the Italian mountains at a time of huge social upheaval, when Italy abandoned the war against the Allies and the German moved in to take over. Eric becomes a prisoner of war, is injured yet escapes, then is recaptured again.
Wanda is the kind of woman that would make every red-blooded male move to Italy, and Eric is the kind of man every woman would fall for. And of course there's a tearful and joyous ending. Best of all, it's a true story!
