Pictures of Volargne before the Destruction.

The two photos below are similar, but different. Victor's Zeiss-Iconta
camera snapped the photo on left by auto-shutter (on its tripod)
showing Victor posing on one knee. Instead, he manually
snapped the photo on right, in which he is missing.

Short preview of our Screenplay "The War of Lions":  

Vittorio Perantoni (Victor) is a Polish born Italian national with dual
citizenship living in Lwów, Poland.  In the 1930s Vittorio and his older
brother Luigi work with their father, Carlo Perantoni, at operating the
family’s successful winery-pasta tavern, and managing their import
business of wine sales and distributing wine from Italy.

But the Nazi-Soviet invasions of Poland change all of that. When the
Italian Consulate orders Italian nationals to evacuate Poland, the
Perantoni family is suddenly forced to abandon their considerable
wealth behind. Victor’s girlfriends will also be left behind as he
flees to Switzerland to avoid Italy's Fascist draft.

Left too are his Polish friends André, Franki, and 'Padre.' All these
persons will be scattered as they face the fears, hardships, and
the physical abuses of World War Two.

The war drags on and Europe burns. His Polish friends André and
Franki are arrested and routed to Siberia, but then ordered into
the newly formed Polish Forces of General Wladyslaw Anders;
Victor's girlfriend Dani faces deportation to a Nazi death camp;
and Vittorio too is nearly captured and imprisoned.

From both sides of enemy lines all are wondering:
will life ever be the same again?

“The War of Lions” will show you life during World War II through
the eyes of the Perantoni family.  You will see it as you have never
seen it before, and you will be gratified by numerous incidents
where Nazi Wehrmacht leaders and Soviet officials had been
outwitted by guile and fearlessness.

The originality of our story is fantastic.  It gives a fresh view on
World War Two from a perspective that hasn’t been seen before.
It focuses on the people, not the armies, thus offering a very
unique view and positive perspective with which to view this era.
 

See the Sudden and Utter Destruction of our Native Town Volargne

With great misfortune, you will see the Perantoni family's native
hometown in Italy, Volargne di Dolcé, literally disappear in one
instant!  Completely blown to dust and rubble
from an enormous
explosion caused by the murderous negligence of Albert Speer's
Nazi Engineers but then simply reported as a military accident.

You will feel the Heartbreaking Betrayal of WWII's Bravest Soldiers

THE ARMED FORCES OF POLAND - Betrayed at Yalta by the
'Big3' Leaders of the Grand Alliance in the final days of WWII.
An entire army of triumphant Polish warriors in their height
of glorious victory – turn
sad, confused, and angry!

HISTORICAL NOTE: At the Yalta conference, Churchill and Roosevelt
hand Poland over to Joseph Stalin!  In protest of such a heartless act
of betrayal thirty Polish officers and men in north-central Italy commit
a public suicide.  They had been honorable Polish war veterans who
defeated Nazi-Fascism, liberated Italy, and stood for a while...
... as the true glorious winners of WWII.
 
WE DEDICATE "THE WAR OF LIONS" TO THESE BRAVE
LIBERATORS OF ITALY AND TRUE WINNERS OF WWII
.
 
Ever since the 1939 Nazi-Soviet invasions of Poland, it was THEIR WAR.
They fought it victoriously for the Polish nation and for the world.  They 
won defeating Nazi-Fascism in 1945 – But, their reward was BETRAYAL. 
 
Why?  Because the 'other enemy' - JOSEPH STALIN - who had conspired
with Adolf Hitler in the 1939 joint invasions of Poland, had become a main
actor in Europe's war.  In 1945 he asserted his claim to eastern Poland as
'lawfully gained' by his 1939 invasion. Then, he also took the western half
which had been lost by his former partner in crime.
 
Consequently, the war's most valiant fighters who defeated Nazi-Fascism
and liberated Italy, had been robbed of their rightfully earned '
Victorious
Homecoming
.  They had fought long and hard for their beloved Poland,
for which a quarter-million of their brothers had been sacrificed.
 
THE BETRAYAL had transformed the noble and victorious Polish Armed
Forces into a huge crowd of homeless exiles scattered all over Europe.
Poland's honorable war veterans could never return to their homeland!
 
They would never again see their spouses ...
... Neither their families nor their homes!
