Very interesting. I found this discussion while I was looking for something else, but then I also found this one:
can anybody translate it into English?

And what about the book? Has it been translated?

I know this is many years late but just in case someone stumbles on this topic via Google in the future:

Captain Bianchi was not really a pilot. He was an envoy of Mussolini and came to Finland under this false pilot identity to negotiate about the logistics of creating a "Legion Garibaldi" for the Finnish war effort in the Winter War.
