An extensive examination of organized crime in America, from the Prohibition era through the late 20th century.
Take a dark journey into the bloody history of American organized crime. It's a saga of ruthless men and soaring profits, legendary shoot-outs and smoke filled rooms and an organization that has survived power struggles and the constant attention of the law. Starting with the Prohibition years, this groundbreaking investigation traces the origins of the ethnic gangs that dominated criminal activities by turning them into family enterprises. Leading historians recall how they changed the face of crime in America. Meet legendary figures like Al Capone, Lucky Luciano, and Lepke Buchalter, and trace their exploits through rare photos, footage and period accounts. Get the real story behind the Kennedy connection, and see how the Mob helped to win WWII and piled up huge profits at the same time. With bootlegging, racketeering and murder at its soul, this is a sweeping saga of bloodshed, betrayal, and big business. The 2 DVDs include all five original episodes: The Prohibition Years, Birth Of The American Mafia, The Kennedys and the Mob, Unions And The Mob, and Empire Of Crime.
