Public Enemies by Bryan Burrough - The astonishing true story of America's first and greatest "War on Crime. Bryan Burrough has unearthed an extraordinary amount of new material on all the major figures involved - revealing many fascinating interconnections in the vast underworld ecosystem that stretched from Texas up to Minnesota. But the real-life connections were insignificant next to the sense of connectedness J. Edgar Hoover worked to create in the mind of the American public-using the "Great Crime Wave" to gain the position of untouchable power he would occupy for almost half a century.

The truth says a lot more for the bureau and a much less for the criminals than Hoover's fiction.

Good book.

Never seen so much dumb luck, ineptness, and jackassery outside of a Dortmunder novel. I almost forgot that the characters in this one were all flesh and blood.

Well written and presented in a clear and direct manner.

I would highly recommend this to anyone even remotely interested in this era and genre of our country's history. I can only begin to imagine the literal mountains of paperwork that Mr. Burrough had to sift through to put together such a fine tome. There are several books out there on all of the people mentioned in this book, but to put them all together in the same book and give someone the sense that they are there...in Chicago and St. Paul and through the Midwest into Texas and Oklahoma...in the story...it is an amazing read. Thank you so much for the tremendous amount of effort as well as insight Mr. Burrough.

This is a well-written and well-researched history of America's "War on Crime" in the early 1930s. Throughout the book, Burrough debunks some of the lingering myths about the bank robbers and the FBI agents that brought them to justice during the era. He includes detailed sections on the criminal exploits of Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker, John Dillinger, Pretty Boy Floyd, Baby Face Nelson, Machine Gun Kelly and Alvin Karpis. The major thesis of the book is that the events surrounding the apprehension of these criminals led to the creation of the modern FBI. For better or worse. it's an engaging read and I would highly recommend the book to anyone interested in true crime sagas or American history in general.

This book offers interesting details about some more infamous criminals and the people who hunted for them. Sometimes the gritty details will make you happy you didn't have to see or smell the action firsthand. Additionally, this book would go well with Public Enemies: America's Criminal Past, 1919-1940 by Helmer, William J.; Mattix, Rick published by Checkmark Books Paperback. Furthermore, after reading this book, you can see an alternative universe by watching The FBI Story, which I did. The truth says a lot more for the bureau and a much less for the criminals than Hoover's fiction.

This is one of the most entertaining history books I have ever read. Burrough does a terrific job blending the narratives for five or six criminal organizations that bounced around the United States during the Depression. He expertly summarizes tens of thousands of pages of FBI files and makes the professionalization of the FBI the common thread that drives the separate stories. It is entertaining to see the way Burrough's tone alternates between exasperated disdain for Hoover and his political moves to fawning praise for the bravery of the outclassed individual agents. He is a bit harsh at times in pointing out clues that the original investigators missed, considering that he has the benefit of seventy years of history to know which names and places were actually significant, but his ultimate picture of the FBI is a positive one. As for the Dillinger stories themselves, I loved Burrough's novelist style in presenting, for example, the fear and confusion of a raid on Little Bohemia, but Dary Matera has a more exhaustive and personal account of the outlaw for interested readers. As far as presenting an epic portrait of the whole political and social landscape while Dillinger and his contemporaries roamed, though, this book is without equal.

When I watch an "historical" movie I then like to do some reading about the subject to find out how accurate the movie really is and to learn more about the events. I got this book to follow-up to the movie "Public Enemies". This is not simply a matter of the book being better than the movie, this book is like watching a movie, a very well done movie. Burroughs does such a fabulous job of portraying the "cops and robbers" and their molls and support systems that I feel like I'm right there in their Michigan lake cottages or their dust bowl hideouts. I can feel the heat, the cold, smell the stockyards in Kansas City, hear the bullets whizzing, everything! This is one of the most descriptive books I have ever read. I simply cannot put it down. And even though I actually know what the outcomes will be for all of these criminals and the FBI who tracked them, I STILL want to read ever word to find out "what's going to happen next". I think telling the story chronologically, rather than doing one criminal's story first than the next's, contributes to the real world feeling of this book. The reader is moving through time with these people, as it is happening, and feels like part of it. Got to go, have to keep reading!!!

I enjoyed this book so much. It is so entertaining, informative and never once did I find it to be a labor to get through. I learned a lot and had fun.
I've heard the names of the Depression era outlaws but this book put them in perspective with each other. Also, learning about the men and women who were tireless in tracking these characters was a delight as well.
I have to admit that I have always been fascinated with the "gangster era" but so much of what was available was myth and media 'enrichment' that I didn't know the real facts of that era.

This book tells it like it really was, and it really was violent and fascinating. So much that I thought I knew was debunked by this book (and the facts contained therein come from FBI files) that it was a true eye opening experience.

If you've seen the movie, don't let that sway you from reading this book. In the movie they have combined some things (the shootout at Little Bohemia is a fine example) and placed some things in the wrong time frame. The movie was really just a snippet of what this book has to offer.

Highly recommended. Well written, interesting, and factual. When done, follow up with On the Rock 2008: Twenty-Five Years in Alcatraz : the Prison Story of Alvin Karpis as told to Robert Livesey. This will enhance and continue from where Public Enemies left off.
