Overview
-

Within weeks of the Pearl Harbor attack and the declaration of war on the United States by Germany and Italy U.S. war plans included the defense of the East Coast and the invasion of Sicily. Ezio Costanzo examines the many elements of this secret scenario that included long suppressed information about co-operation between the Mafia and the U.S. Army. The results came in the aftermath of the invasion during the new military government that gave many Mafia leaders important administrative positions. Seen from an Italian standpoint the success of U.S. forces is examined in detail and many questions are finally answered.
