Gansters and Outlaws of the 1930's : Landmarks of the Public Enemy Era chronicles a turbulent and complex period in our country's history. As the American people suffered through the Great Depression, they took time out to focus on the exploits of notorious outlaws. From John Dillinger to Pretty Boy Floyd and Bonnie and Clyde, the criminals from this time period are brought to life as the criminals they were - not the figures romanticized in the movies.
Richard and James Owen document the careers of these violent, yet colorful, bandits. Each chapter includes photographs and brief biographies of the infamous outlaws, as well as photographs of the actual crime scenes where the robberies, shoot-outs, and jailbreaks occurred. The masterful research to pinpoint the exact location of each event included interviews, local newspapers, and historical societies. Triple confirmation makes this resource the most complete guide to the sites from this era of our nation's past.
An additional feature is an appendix of the lawmen killed by the outlaws.
Twelve killed by members of the Dillinger Gang
Nine killed by Bonnie and Clyde and other members of the Barrow Gang
Eight killed by Barker-Karpis Gang members
Six killed by Pretty Boy Floyd and his assosciates
