CHARLES “LUCKY” LUCIANO was an Organization Man with a difference. The organization he belonged to was The Mafia—a natural setup for a vicious thug with unlimited ambition and a heart of ice. Murder by murder, rape by rape, he established the biggest chair of brothels ever seen in New York. Everything—everyone—he touched turned rotten. He knew he had it made when he had more cops on his payroll prostitutes. Pal of Al Capone, Frank Costello Buggsy Siegel, Albert Anastasia, Lucky became the absolute ruler of a private empire built on vice, corruption and murder. This is the Lucky Luciano story—brutal, shocking, with nothing left out.
After the death of two dear military friends, I decided that their stories and mine needed to be told, as these stories disappear when we depart the earth. All these stories have one thing in common, the story tellers made it through their experiences and lived to tell their tales These stories are from members of the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force & Coast Guard and some foreign sources. Many are first hand accounts, some by family members and some from gatherings of veterans. These stories are told by veterans from the American Civil War to current conflicts. Some are lighthearted, some are told after many tears over many years and others are almost unbelievable. All stories are told to share real life experiences and to give the reader an up-close and personal view of how it really was.
Although several issues specific to South African culture are explored, this novel for both young readers and teachers—in which Lucky Simelane's quest for self-discovery eventually touches a raw nerve in the national psyche—raises universal questions pertaining to identity, ethnic origin, family, and belonging. Raised in a rural, black community and teased because of his light brown eyes and blond hair, Lucky's conflict reveals both his personal struggle for identity and the confusing public reaction to his cultural make-up.
