Summary
After a badly burned pilot is pulled from the wreckage of his plane in the Sahara Desert, he's placed in the care of an army nurse and identified only as "the English patient". As his memory slowly returns, a passionate and consuming love affair with a married woman is unveiled, and lives from both the past and the present become inextricably altered
Summary
At the end of World War II, the lives of four people--a young American nurse; her dying English patient; a handless American thief; and an Indian soldier in the British army--intertwine in a deserted Italian villa.
