Remo Bosia was an American soldier and author of the memoir The General and I (New York: Phaedra, 1971) [1]. He spent the years of World War II in court-martial proceedings after attempting to enlist in the United States Army. His book talks about how he felt personally singled out by General John L. DeWitt.

An Italian-American, Bosia was born in Madera, California, and moved to Europe at age six with his parents. As a young man, he returned to the United States, where he worked as a stunt pilot and then as a writer and translator for San Francisco's Italian-American newspaper, L'Italia. After his World War II travails, described in his book The General and I, Bosia opened a jewelry store, which he ran until his retirement, at which time he began operating a motel. The multi-talented Bosia also composed several songs and painted landscapes, which were exhibited locally.[2]
