Bonnie and Clyde were a product of the Depression years when a crime-wave, fuelled by Prohibition, gripped the United States. The Barrow gang lived by robbing banks, stealing cars and holding up stores and filling stations. Clyde personally participated in ten of the twelve murders of which the gang is accused, and he most probably personally pulled the trigger on seven people. Once Clyde had blood on his hands there was no going back, yet his miraculous escapes from police road-blocks and at least six pitched gun-battles earned him a reputation of invincibility. Only through the betrayal of a former gang member were he and his lover gunned down in a carefully staged ambush to bring to an end their two-year crime spree. Separating fact from fiction, this is the first publication which revisits the scenes of all their known and proven crimes across 500,000 miles of the American Midwest and Southwest. Presented in After the Battle's usual 'then and now' format, 70 years on we picture the locations of the robberies and shoot-outs... and seek out graves of those who died... lest their victims be overshadowed and forgotten by the legendary exploits of Bonnie and Clyde.
