Product Description:

The U.S. fought many known enemies during WWII, but this episode of the History Channel's Dead Men's Secrets series adds one more to the list: the Mafia. In AMERICA AND THE MOB - WARTIME FRIENDS, military historians and scholars discuss the government's involvement with the mob throughout the 1940s.

Description by New Video Group:

At the beginning of WWII, America wasn't yet fighting, but her support for the Allies was clear. The 1941 Lend-Lease Act enabled FDR to ship weapons and essential materials to England. But were U.S. harbors being watched' In 1942, fire broke out on The Normandie, a luxury liner turned troop carrier. Was it Nazi sabotage' Decades later, Lucky Luciano claimed the Mafia had burnt The Normandie, and in the aftermath struck a protection deal with the government to prevent further "Nazi sabotage".
