History

Author: Michael Esslinger

Alcatraz: A Definitive History of the Penitentiary Years

This Kindle eBook edition has been completely revised, reedited and updated with new inmate / officer interviews and historical accounts! NOTE: This book contains graphic depictions of crime and prison violence.

ALCATRAZ – the name alone said it all… It was meant to send a shudder down the spines of the nation’s most incorrigible criminals. It stripped Al Capone of his power. It tamed “Machine Gun” Kelly into a model of decorum. It took the birds away from the Birdman of Alcatraz.

When prisoners boarded the boat for Alcatraz, they knew that they had reached the end of the line. Not only was this the toughest of all Federal penitentiaries, but it was also said to be virtually escape-proof. The island was a natural fortress, separated from the mainland by a narrow strait of freezing water and deadly currents.

Historian Michael Esslinger thoroughly details the prominent events, inmates, and life inside the most infamous prison in American History, one of the most comprehensive archives of inmate and prison life photographs from 1934-1963.
