    Havana Nocturne takes listeners back to Cuba in the years when it was a veritable devil's playground for mob leaders Meyer Lansky and Charles "Lucky" Luciano. Thanks to strong ties with the island's brutal dictator, President Batista, the mob soon owned the biggest luxury hotels and casinos and launched an unprecedented tourist boom. But their dreams collided with those of Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, and others.

    Overall

    I love history because I like to understand people and their contributions in the context of their time. Historians write about people who take action, for good or for ill. You don't have to like Lansky, Luciano, Trafficante, Castro, Batista or any of the other characters. But, one should recognize they were all men of action and did what they needed to do to become what they were. It is important that you understand the lessons history presents through their existence. I enjoyed this listen and highly recommend it.
