The Battle for Sicily's Soul

This is an absorbing read. The author has obviously put in a great deal of time and research, from the expansive resources referenced and supplied as further reading, to the timeline of dates included at the end of each section. Although dense with information, it flows really well, as you learn about everything from the unification of Italy through to the political climate around the time of the Cold War and the flaws in the judicial system exploited to this day by the Cosa Nostra.
