During the bleak days of the Great Depression, news of economic hardship often took a backseat to articles on the exploits of an outlaw from Indiana—John Dillinger. For a period of fourteen months during 1933 and 1934 Dillinger became the most famous bandit in American history, and no criminal since has matched him for his celebrity and notoriety. Dillinger won public attention not only for his robberies, but his many escapes from the law. The escapes he made from jails or “tight spots,” when it seemed law officials had him cornered, became the stuff of legends. While the public would never admit that they wanted the “bad guy” to win, many could not help but root for the man who appeared to be an underdog. Although his crime wave took place in the last century, the name Dillinger has never left the public imagination

By the end of 1934 Melvin Purvis was, besides President Roosevelt, the most famous man in America. Just thirty one years old, he presided over the neophyte FBI's remarkable sweep of the great Public Enemies of the American Depression - John Dillinger; Pretty Boy Floyd; Baby Face Nelson. America finally had its hero in the War on Crime, and the face of all the conquering G-Men belonged to Melvin Purvis. Yet these triumphs sowed the seeds of his eventual ruin. With each new capture, each new headline touting Purvis as the scourge of gangsters, one man's implacable resentment grew. J. Edgar Hoover, Director of the FBI, was immensely jealous of the agent who had been his friend and protege, and vowed that Melvin Purvis would be brought down. A vendetta began that would not end even with Purvis's death. For more than three decades Hoover trampled Purvis's reputation, questioned his courage and competence, and tried to erase his name from all records of the FBI's greatest triumphs. Alston Purvis is Melvin's only surviving son. With the benefit of a unique family archive of documents, new testimony from colleagues and friends of Melvin Purvis and witnesses to the events of 1934, he has produced a grippingly authentic new telling of the gangster era, seen from the perspective of the pursuers. By finally setting the record straight about his father, he sheds new light on what some might call Hoover's original sin - a personal vendetta that is one of the earliest and clearest examples of Hoover's bitter, destructive paranoia.

*Covers the lives, crimes, and deaths of the Public Enemies. *Explains the legends and myths surrounding all of the public enemies in an attempt to separate fact from fiction. *Includes pictures of important people, places, and events. *Includes Bibliographies for further reading. America has always preferred heroes who weren't clean cut, an informal ode to the rugged individualism and pioneering spirit that defined the nation in previous centuries. The early 19th century saw the glorification of frontier folk heroes like Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone. After the Civil War, the outlaws of the West were more popular than the marshals, with Jesse James and Billy the Kid finding their way into dime novels. And at the height of the Great Depression in the 1930s, there were the "public enemies," common criminals and cold blooded murderers elevated to the level of folk heroes by a public frustrated with their own inability to make a living honestly. In 1933, the Chicago Crime Commission designated the first Public Enemy, and the most famous of them all. Despite his organized crime spree during the '20s, Al Capone was a popular figure in Chicago, viewed by many as a Robin Hood because he took pains to make charitable donations to the city. At the same time, he bribed government officials and cops, ensuring they looked the other way despite his violent ways of doing business. Throughout the decade, Capone was often out in public, despite several attempts on his life, and the gang war between Al Capone and Bugs Moran was well known and even celebrated to an extent. Even to this day, Chicago's gangster past is viewed as part of the city's lore, and tours of the most famous spots in Chicago's gang history are available across the city. Eventually, J. Edgar Hoover's FBI appropriated the term "Public Enemy" and applied it to outlaws like John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson, and Bonnie and Clyde. Two months after Franklin D. Roosevelt's inauguration in 1933, a petty thief who had spent almost a decade behind bars for attempted theft and aggravated assault was released from jail. By the end of the year, that man, John Dillinger, would be America's most famous outlaw: Public Enemy Number One. From the time of his first documented heist in early July 1933, until his dramatic death in late July of the following year, he would capture the nation's attention and imagination as had no other outlaw since Jesse James. The man who became Public Enemy Number One after the deaths of John Dillinger and Pretty Boy Floyd was Baby Face Nelson, who ran with Dillinger in 1934. Baby Face was a merciless outlier who pulled triggers almost as fast as he lost his temper. By the time fate caught up with Baby Face Nelson in November 1934 at the "Battle of Barrington," a shootout that left his body riddled with nearly 20 bullet holes, he was believed to have been responsible for the deaths of more FBI agents than anybody else in American history. There was no shortage of well known public enemies like John Dillinger and Baby Face Nelson, but none fascinated the American public as much as Bonnie and Clyde. While the duo and their Barrow Gang were no more murderous than other outlaws of the era, the duo's romantic relationship and the discovery of photographs at one of their hideouts added a more human dimension to Bonnie and Clyde, even as they were gunning down civilians and cops alike. When Bonnie and Clyde were finally cornered and killed in a controversial encounter with police, a fate they shared with many other outlaws of the period, their reputations were cemented. Public Enemies chronicles the lives, legends, and legacies of America's most famous public enemies. Along with pictures of important people, places, and events, you will learn about Capone, Dillinger, Baby Face, and Bonnie & Clyde like never before.

In spring, 1934, John Dillinger made his infamous "wooden gun" escape from an Indiana prison. Within 24 hours he had found a hideout in Minnesota's Twin Cities. The Resurrection of John Dillinger is a novel based on the last spring of Dillinger's life, between that prison escape and the firefight at Little Bohemia. The story opens on Easter Saturday 1934, when federal agents trapped Dillinger and Billie Frechette in a Saint Paul apartment. Dillinger is wounded but recovers after help from Saint Paul gangsters and a Minneapolis doctor. The novel also follows the two historical characters who helped Dillinger hide out after his Indiana jailbreak. In helping Dillinger, those two, Bess Green and Patrick Reilly, are in far more trouble than they can handle. Bess will become one of the key informers of the Public Enemies era. Patrick will narrowly escape at Little Bohemia, and loyal to the underworld, will pay dearly for his silence. The Resurrection of John Dillinger is the fifth and final book in a series of historically-accurate novels about the gangster era.

John Dillinger's reign as Public Enemy No. 1 began in the summer of 1933, when he left the Commercial Bank of Daleville, Indiana, with $3,500 and a diamond ring belonging to the bank president's daughter. It was the depth of the Depression. Banks were closing everywhere, and millions of Americans were losing their life savings. To them, Dillinger's act made him a sort of hero, even a modern-day Robin Hood. Within the next year, he would go on to rob ten banks and break out of two jails, one of them theoretically "escape-proof." Everything John Dillinger did, whether if was firing a tommy gun or relieving smitten bank tellers of the cash in their vaults, he did with style. This is his story, as told by Dillinger and those who knew him. Brought to life by Arthur Winfield Knight, the voices of the past emerge to vividly recount the renegade's story. Dillinger's associates included the likes of Harry Pierpont and George "Baby Face" Nelson. And the women in his life were as colorful as the boys in his gang, from the love of his life, Evelyn "Billie" Frechette, to Anna Sage, the "woman in red," who lured him into the FBI sting that resulted in his death on July 22, 1934. Many a man fell on both sides in the effort to capture--and keep imprisoned--the incorrigible Johnnie D. Sixty-five years after Dillinger's death, Knight proves that this story of America's dashing Public Enemy is still the most charged and gutsy of the 1930s. Dillinger remains the enduring symbol of the gangster era, a gentleman on the wrong side of the law.

According to the FBI, public enemy number one John Dillinger was gunned down by agents at the Biograph Theatre in July, 1934. However Jay Robert Nash calls this report into question in this fascinating piece of investigative journalism. Nash asserts that it was Dillinger's doppelgänger rather than the man himself whose life was taken in Chicago. Full of colorful characters and rich descriptions, this book is an essential for any true crime buff, whether you agree with Nash's theory or not.
