ISBN: 1565543033; Author: Boulard, Garry; Publisher: Pelican Publications; Format: Paperback; Mobsters. Gamblers. Prostitutes. Union Agitators. During the Great Depression in New Orleans, all were ruled by the Kingfish. Huey Long was a madman -- on his way to power greater than the complete control of an American state. One thing stood in his way: New Orleans, the country's quirkiest city refused to buckle before the Kingfish's power. This book tells the story of an epic struggle between America's favorite city and an almost-dictator who sent in 3,000 militiamen to make his point.
