EPUB ↠ The Untold Story from Inside His Family õ Deirdre Marie Capone

A stunning memoir by the last living Capone Deirdre Marie Capone offers the portrait of an American family and her favorite Uncle endlessly depicted as the iconic mastermind behind some of the century s most brutal killings Filled with never before p Interesting insider memories of Al Capone It's the only biography written by a member of his family who had met him The author is Al's great niece Although the author sometimes talks about how she needed and got information to conclude something very positive about Al when others have understood events differently I got the feeling throughout the book that she's pulling for him way too hard The author also sometimes ignored indisputable available evidence when it conflicted with her portrayal of Al as of a beleaguered misunderstood guy than anything else Although she points out he wasn't perfect which I've never heard anyone argue against For example she tells how high level federal penitentiary officials sent Uncle Al to Alcatraz without any good reason They were just trying to make his life as miserable as possible However I recall seeing a photo in Alcatraz A Definitive History of the Penitentiary Years that showed huge furniture in Al's cell at Atlanta US Penitentiary The Atlanta prison officials had basically pampered Al and allowed him to continue running his gang business from his cell The feds sent Al to Alcatraz so he'd be treated exactly like every other inmate there The book seems filled with the author's personal memories of Al The author includes a tremendous amount of details Al died when the author was only seven years old Perhaps she has a phenomenal memory; it's way too much for me to readily believe A different type of example of author's total inattention to accuracy She referred to a family member who didn't have to go fight in World War I in which she said 100 million US soldiers died The total population of the US in the census just four years previous to WWI was less than 100 million people About 117000 US soldiers died in that war So based on the author's number1 For every US soldier who died in World War I the author reported about 855 dead US soldiers2 Every man woman and child in the US was killed in World War I And that still did not account for all the deaths she reported Overall I enjoyed some of the personal stories about Al but didn't find the author credible enough to suit me

MOBI Uncle Al Capone

Uncle Al Capone The Untold Story from Inside His Family Only successful escape from Alcatraz Even get the family recipes for Al Capone's favorite meals But most importantly learn about what family life was like for the Capones and what it was like growing up in Chicago with the most notorious of last nam I am giving this book a low rating because it makes incredible claims based on flimsy source material The success claim of the Roe and Cole escape is based on a letter from an inmateand that's it? I'm willing to consider an alternative view of the St Valentine's Day Massacre but some of the other claims especially the Alcatraz parts seem too far fetched When a family member makes these claims we scrutinize them harshly because of the bias but there doesn't seem to be any great source material That doesn't mean they are not true but it's not enough for me to discount other evidence about his life
