Joseph Bonanno

Joseph Bonanno, the infamous Mafia "Boss of Bosses," was born in Castellammare del Golfo, Sicily. Bonanno found his future amid the whiskey-running, riotous streets of Prohibition America in 1924, when he illegally entered the United States to pursue his dreams. By the age of twenty-six, Bonanno had became a don. He would eventually take over the New York underworld, igniting the "Castellamarese War," one of the bloodiest Family battles ever to hit New York City. His book, A Man of Honor (St. Martin’s), was an international bestseller.
