    The Untouchables MOBI ↠ Ö eBook american revolutionary war.co untouchables pdf, The Untouchables ePUBI liked the 1987 Brian De Palma movie so when I saw this old paperback going for a few dollars at our local second hand bookstore I couldn't resist It is in fact terribly written and other people say it's not very accurate either apparently the ghostwriter has improved the story a good deal But assuming that the basic figures reported are roughly correct here's the thing that surprised meWe're told that Al Capone at his most powerful was pulling in about 15M a year from his various rackets the most important of which was selling bootleg beer How much is 15M in 1929 money? I wasn't sure and had to look it up It turns out according to the inflation calculato

    The Untouchables MOBI ↠ Ö eBook american revolutionary war.co untouchables pdf, The Untouchables ePUBI was entertained than educated by The Untouchables which is hardly surprising when you consider that Ness was a publicity monger who recognized the value of a good story and enhanced the truth whenever it fell flat There are phone threats drive by shootings and murders galore despite the fact that the son of one Untouchable Barney Cloonan told Ness biographer Paul Heimel that they were rarely shot at Although Ness and the Untouchables did not take down the Capone mob as claimed in the popular media they did damage the famous mobster's bootleg income inconveniencing him financially Ness died just before The Untouchables hit print making it a haunting as well as intriguing read It's not an objective look at the dying years of Prohibition and the downfall of Al Capone but has novelty value as Ness's final words on that exciting period in his career

    The Untouchables MOBI ↠ Ö eBook american revolutionary war.co untouchables pdf, The Untouchables ePUBEliot Ness tells the story of how Justice finally caught up with Al Capone Much better than the movie Ness tells how he and his men really were untouchable by Capone or his gang Though not acknowledged by Ness it seemed clear that for whatever reason God's providential care was on this man

    The Untouchables MOBI ↠ Ö eBook american revolutionary war.co untouchables pdf, The Untouchables ePUBVery interesting first hand account of the bootlegging business in Chicago in the 20s and 30s Easy read read it in one day Interesting to see how Capone etc were making so much cash they could offer bribes of 100000 or a year a highly respectable salary even today

    The Untouchables MOBI ↠ Ö eBook american revolutionary war.co untouchables pdf, The Untouchables ePUBI was just 6 years old when The Untouchables series began running on television but I have vague memories of the noirish feel of the series and the expressionless determined face of Robert Stack as Eliot Ness Kevin Costner's Ness never really took the place of that neo human hero of the late fifties and early sixties in atmospheric black and whiteMy impression of Ness's own story told in this book is close to that mythological Ness The book feels like a novel than a modern autobiography I've heard that Ness exaggerates his own role in the events he describes I don't know

    The Untouchables MOBI ↠ Ö eBook american revolutionary war.co untouchables pdf, The Untouchables ePUB35 stars This highly sanitized and at times fictionalized account of Ness’ formation of The Untouchables was ghostwritten by journalist Oscar Fraley who informs us in the Epilogue that he published the book after Ness died while the manuscript was in proofs It reads like a 1950s detective police procedural the perfect source material for the Robert Stack tv series It was pretty clear from the opening pages that the book wasn’t meant to be an objective look at Ness or his comrades but rather a work to praise and ultimately memorialize and mythologize his time in Chicago His personal failings and foibles of which there were many are not even acknowledged much less glossed The book ends with the imprisonment of Capone so Ness’ patchy post Untouchables life is not discussed nor his eually rocky marriages The most famous moments from the classic De Palma film which is a much better work are not in the book the Union StationOdessa steps homage shoot out Nitti being thrown o
