Description:

The biggest political conspiracy of World War II started at the 1932 Democratic Convention, when mobsters Frank Costello and Lucky Luciano traveled from New York to Chicago’s Drake Hotel to witness Franklin Delano Roosevelt become the party’s candidate. A decade later in Sicily, everyone, from the average Joe to the highest-ranking political and military officers, knew that the Allies would arrive on July 10th. A reconstruction of the Allied invasion of Sicily that analyzes the role of the Freemasons, Mafia, monarchy, and Pontifical State in paving the way for the creation of the Italian Republic.
