Уou ll never walk alone
I used this book for a history project for a class called "History by Hollywood". The book was used to verify and debunk some of the material in the 1960's era film "Bonnie & Clyde". I was able to find information in the book to give my project some facts that were not brought out in the film. The book seemed to be factual and was interestingly written.

Very good! I used it when I was researching a piece I was writing about Blanche Barrow. Seems very factual.

Mr. Milner does a good job of writing. There is no new material, but then again, its copyright date is 1996. For those who are not familar with B&C, this book would be a good start.

The Life and Times of Bonnie and Clyde

E. R. Milner is a professor of history and government at Tarrant College in Fort Worth, Texas. He has published several articles on Texas history, served as editor of the ‘Tarrant Historical Review’, and author and producer of two video documentaries. This book is based on primary sources: oral history, personal memoirs, newspaper articles, official records, diaries, and letters. This 1996 book has 187 pages for the ‘Contents’, 12 chapters, ‘Notes’, and ‘Index’. The ‘Acknowledgments’ list those who helped the author. The ‘Prologue’ reminds us of the Great Depression, the worst economic era in our history. Banks went bust, depositor’s money disappeared. Stocks were devalued or became worthless. Unemployment was over 50%, people starved to death. Rural areas suffered economically during the 1920's. Bank robberies were viewed by many as justice.

The Barrow gang carved a grisly swath through Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri with a number of dead and wounded. [That 1967 movie was a romanticized and fictionalized version of their lives.] The father of one of the Barrow gang members agreed to betray Bonnie and Clyde in return for a pardon for his son (Chapter 1). Captain Frank Hamer of the Texas Rangers and five law officers waited to ambush Bonnie and Clyde and ambush them on sight. There was a culture of violence and poverty that shaped people’s lives (Chapter 2). Clyde had a passion for music and guns; the death car had a saxophone as well as many firearms. After fleeing from the police Clyde met Bonnie. Bonnie married at sixteen, he husband was jailed for robbery (Chapter 3). She met and fell in love with Clyde. Clyde was sent to prison for robberies and burglaries. Then he escaped. The police were after them for their robberies. The robberies continued, Clyde shot and killed a grocer (Chapter 5).

The robberies and murders continued (Chapter 6). The Barrow gang continued to elude the police. They continued their robberies and shootings (Chapter 7). A couple was kidnapped, driven away, then abandoned in the country. Bonnie would not leave Clyde. Bonnie recovered from her burns while Clyde, Buck, and W.D. continued robbing in Kansas (Chapter 8). Buck was badly wounded and died in captivity in Iowa; Blanche was captured. A family visit gave the lawmen another chance to ambush Bonnie and Clyde (Chapter 9). Clyde wanted Ford automobiles as their steel bodies turned away pistol bullets. Governor Ferguson approved of Frank Hamer for tracking down Bonnie and Clyde and eliminating them.

Chapter 10 contains more of their bank robberies and car thefts. There was conflicts so Ray Hamilton and Mary O’Dare left the gang. Two motorcycle policemen who investigated a car parked beside the road were killed (Chapter 11). Hamer discovered the travel pattern of Bonnie and Clyde. The hunt intensified. The Attorney General of the US ordered field officers to offer assistance. The search moved to Louisiana (Chapter 12). A truck parked along the road caused Clyde to slow down. The lawmen opened fire with their rifles. “But it’s death for Bonnie and Clyde.” Crowds gathered to view the remains, “shot to pieces” (p.152). Souvenir hunters searched the ambush site. The embalmed bodies were taken to Dallas. The ‘Epilogue’ tells of the fates of the other gang members, the lawmen, and the victims of Bonnie and Clyde. Their exploits sold newspapers.

The exploits of John Dillinger were also publicized in that era. Dillinger inspired movies like “The Petrified Forest” and “High Sierra”, both worth watching today. This well-written is interesting. But it lacks a Bibliography to reference other books on the subject. There were other gangs that were involved in bank robberies and other crimes.
