The Life and Death of Giuliano the Bandit

Billy Jaynes Chandler

During his brief, violent, romantic career in the 1940s, bandit chief Salvatore Giuliano entranced the common folk of Sicily, fascinated the world's journalists, and exasperated the authorities who sought to apprehend him. At last his story is told accurately and compassionately.
