Castellammarese War

Description. Lang: en

The Castellammarese War was a bloody power struggle for control of the Italian-American Mafia that took place in New York City from February 1930 to April 15, 1931, between partisans of Joe "The Boss" Masseria and those of Salvatore Maranzano. The war's namesake was derived from the Sicilian town of Castellammare del Golfo, the birthplace of Maranzano. Maranzano's faction won, divided New York City's crime families into the Five Families, and declared himself capo di tutti capi ("boss of all bosses"). However, he was soon murdered in September 1931, on orders of Lucky Luciano, who established a power-sharing arrangement called "The Commission", a group of Mafia families of equal stature, to avoid such wars in the future.
