Good point - just because it takes place during a war doesn't mean it's a war story.

I already guessed. Am I allowed to give DLR a hint?

You're past the deadline, KO, so no, sorry.

It is indeed someone from The Godfather. It's

Peter Clemenza

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Clemenza
https://godfather.fandom.com/wiki/Peter_Clemenza

The pudgy Corleone caporegime made immortal by the line, "Take the gun. Leave the cannoli."

I would have guessed one of the Corleones anyway.

It's been ages since I've seen the Godfather movies and only remember a few characters, but I'm OK with this answer.
