‘Alcatraz: A Very Brief History’ is a concise history of the maximum security prison that housed some of the country’s most dangerous inmates, including such infamous criminals as Al Capone and the «Birdman» Robert Stroud. However, the history of Alcatraz is more varied and interesting than many people might think; its strategically important location in the San Francisco Bay meant that it was an important defensive fort for several decades, and it played a key role in the American Civil War, when it served as a military prison.
