A sweeping saga of bloodshed, betrayal and big business, this comprehensive collection of documentaries from HISTORY offers a cold-blooded examination of organized crime, from prohibition and WWII to the hitmen and women who are currently administering the brutal judgments of the mob. A groundbreaking investigation into the origins – and present-day activities – of the ethnic gangs that turned criminal activities into family enterprises, The Mafia exposes an underworld of danger, money, glamour and murder, covering such notorious figures as Al Capone, Lucky Luciano, Carlo Gambino and John Gotti, as well as topics including the bloody mob wars that have recently scarred Philadelphia, the murky past of the Kennedys, the ordinary, privileged, and at times remarkable women who gained stature in a male-dominated world, and the gangster-turned-informants who make it possible to prosecute the Mafia.
