About this title


Gangland Cleveland style is a look through the vast history of the Cleveland Mob. Their rise of power from the many men who fought for control of the city. Their courageous struggles with law enforcement and the enemies who continue to attack them from every angle to control a more significant share of the cities underworld wealth. The feared Sicilian immigrants of the early twenties who battled and struggled to meet the day to day rival gangs which would often bring about their death, just to earn a living on the tuff streets. These real stories will prove how Cleveland became the third highest ranking and influential Mafia town in the country behind New York and Chicago. “Gangland Cleveland Style” showcases the ambitious drive, their rise in respect across America and of course their demise in the late 1970’s. I focus on the Lonardo’s, Porrello’s, Frank & Anthony Milano “Mayfield Road Gang” to Al Polizzi and of course John Scalish. The ongoing fight with Danny Greene and the aftermath of James Licavoli and the dramatic testimony of a Protected Federal Witness, “Underboss” Angelo Lonardo. The astonishing true stories of the Prohibition and the Circulation Wars, illegal Casinos along with the Policy and Drug rackets will fascinate you as you learn more about their protected inner circle of friends. People like Mickey McBride, Ray Ferritto, Alex Shondor Birns, the Angersola Brothers, John DeMarco and of course their connection with the powerful Jewish Syndicate. I dive into their brilliant and impressive connection with the various powerful Labor unions, and of course, the great Teamster Union were William, and Jackie Presser ruled over the flock of disciples. Read about the numerous stories of other union leaders who were a pivotal connection to the Mafia across the country and to Cleveland. Cleveland’s role in the famous Apalachin Summit with their colorful, yet complicated friendships and connection with many of the high-level Mafia Bosses across the country and how Cleveland became a principal player in the Los Angeles Mafia.

About the Author:

As the grandson of Frank Brancato, My first project was about his life inside the Mafia entitled, "Mafia Street Boss." I am delighted to inform you that I delve into the secret life of one of Ohio’s most feared personalities and a linchpin in the Sicilian underworld. My research brought me to include two additional project besides the one that features my Grandfather. "King of Clubs is a focus on the many fascinating illegal casinos that operated around the Cleveland area for many years. My third Project, "Gangland Cleveland Style focuses on the many people who made up the Cleveland Crime Syndicate and their rise in power and their ultimate demise.
