MSC, you can find references to Luciano's help in two areas--labor peace on NYC waterfront, and in the Allied invasion of Sicily--in many Mob books. I suggest you take the references from two excellent Mob books (vs. so many others that are mediocre). Try Selwyn Raab's "The Five Families," and Robert Lacey's "Little Man - Meyer Lansky and the Gangster Life." Lansky, Luciano's closest adviser, was the intermediary between Luciano, the government and the Mob while Luciano was in prison.


Ntra la porta tua lu sangu sparsu,
E nun me mporta si ce muoru accisu...
E s'iddu muoru e vaju mparadisu
Si nun ce truovo a ttia, mancu ce trasu.
