Hello Indy and crew and congratulations on getting married Indy! It is my understanding that Mussolini was an avid opponent on the mafia and did a lot to crack down on the mafia in Italy during his time in power. In what ways (if any) did the Sicilian Mafia aid the Allied effort in Operation Husky? Thank you to you and the crew for all of your hard work and effort in making detailed academic history available to the general public in such an engaging manner! GO STROS!
The Mafia did aid the Allies in Husky, but also in other areas in the war. In Operation Underworld, the US Navy cooperated with the mafia. During Husky, mafia boss Vito Genovese became an interpreter and advisor in Naples. He was also very trusted by AMGOT.
