Christie Books, the online free film download site has just added three new titles to its list. They all relate to 'Operation Gladio' which was part of the "strategy of tension" of the CIA and Italian right wing forces back in the 60s and 70s. Dirty tricks abound. Part of this was the bombing of the Milan Piazza Fontana in 1969, carried out by neo-fascist groups at the behest of unnamed forces in the Italian state. It later led to the murder of the Italian anarchist Guiseppe Pinelli, a case immortalized by playwright Dario Fo in 'Accidental Death of an Anarchist'. Christie Books now has a trilogy available on the acts of the spooks of that day. They are:
Gladio 1:The Ringmasters
Gladio 2: The Puppeteers
Gladio 3:The Foot Soldiers
Drop on over to download and view these and the many other offerings available at Christie Books' Brightcove site. Help support their work.
