Description
"In Killing the Mob, Bill O'Reilly and coauthor Martin Dugard trace the brutal history of twentieth-century organized crime in the United States, through the larger-than-life stories of the most notorious outlaws, murderers, and Mob family bosses. Beginning in the 1930s, O'Reilly and Dugard reveal the truth behind the mythology of the bank robbers of the Depression era, such as John Dillinger, Bonnie and Clyde, Pretty Boy Floyd, and Baby Face Nelson. Then, following the rise of organized crime, the authors highlight the creation of the Mafia Commission, the power struggles within the Five Families, and the growth of the FBI under its director, J. Edgar Hoover. After detailing the secret links between the Mafia and the Allies in World War II, Killing the Mob recounts the Mob battles to control Cuba, Las Vegas, and Hollywood; its controversial relationship with the Kennedy White House; and the personal war between U.S. Attorney General Bobby Kennedy and legendary Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa."--,Provided by publisher.
