Summary : The Mafia at War: The Shocking True Story of America's Wartime Pact with Organized Crime (Unabridged)

Drawing on a wealth of eyewitness accounts, contemporary reports, and declassified intelligence documents, some never published before, The Mafia at War reconstructs the relationships between the Mafia and Allied intelligence organizations.

Discover how Jewish gangsters clashed with Nazis on the streets of New York; how Mafiosi nearly issued contracts to kill top Nazis, including Hitler; how Mafia-backed bandits conducted a guerrilla war for Sicilian independence; and how Eisenhower was happy to arm the Mafia during the Allied invasion of Sicily.

Uncovering the extraordinary secrets of this collaboration, Newark provides crucial insight into both the history of World War II and how the Mafia came to dominate global crime in the post-war world.
