A couple of real good books in this department are The Luciano
Project by Rodney Campbell and a recent book called Mafia Allies by
Tim Newark. The latter book is especially good on Sicily and the
special problems created for the Allied Military Governments by the
Mafia, tho it does include a few quotes from the questionable Lest
Testament of Lucky Luciano. Both books cover the action on both sides
of the Atlantic.
