Any Mafia enthusiast (or History buff)- IS A MUST SEE
22 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

This was a pretty enlightening/educational production. It was a thrill to sit down with key members of the justice department, neighborhood eyewitnesses, "retired" La Cosa Nostra and friends and family of the old Ohio neighborhoods. It was a walk through time and did a tremendous job explaining how the mafia came to power. As well as the damage these historic trials inflicted on the Cleveland and NY Mob.

If you are a mafia enthusiast, history buff or just curious about the inter workings of these "connected' families then please tune in and watch SUGAR WARS. In addition, these historical trials acted as a spring board for Rudy Giuliani's political career.
