Season 2 review
11 October 2018 | by elliotjeorySee all my reviews

Season 2 is the story of the rise of the mafia in Chicago, the story of Al Capone's rise and fall and the story of the leaders of the Chicago outfit. Although it wasn't as interesting as Lucky Luciano's story it is still fascinating viewing. If you are interested in the history of the mob this is essential viewing. You will learn a lot through the renanactments of historical events told by the narrator and interviewees.
