Summary

Al Capone and Chicago at one time were almost synonymous. While opinions of the infamous mob leader varied from group to group, Capone was at one point seen by many as a lovable outlaw and modern Robin Hood. How could this man who ran the most vicious criminal organization in the country become so beloved by the general public? Was it the rags-to-riches tale of an immigrant that rose from the bottom to make it to the big time that transfixed the nation? Or is it something else entirely? Let us discover just what is it about the life of Al Capone that seems to spark both disgust and admiration in those that hear it.

Inside you will hear about:

  • How Capone became Scarface
  • The murder of McSwiggin
  • Public enemy number one
  • Taking down Capone
  • Holed up in Alcatraz
  • The last days of Al Capone
  • And much more!

This is the story of the life and enduring legend of the Italian-American mobster that some loved and others loved to hate.
