From the bestselling author of Enforcer
Wrecking Crew takes you into the heart of the Bandidos, and the outlaw biker world, through the eyes, fists and boots of Caesar Campbell, founding member of the Bandidos in Australia and the club's first sergeant at arms and legendary enforcer.
Jailed for seven years after the bloody ambush at Milperra that saw two of his brothers killed, Caesar led and protected the other imprisoned members of his club inside some of Australia's toughest jails. But when he was finally released Caesar found that the world of the outlaw motorcycle gangs was changing, and that his particular values of courage, brutal force and utter loyalty to your club were making him more enemies than friends. And with Caesar Campbell you'd rather be a friend than an enemy...
About the Authors
Caesar Campbell was originally a member of the Gladiators motorcycle club and joined the Comancheros at the end of the Seventies. An expert in hand-to-hand combat, and as fearsome with his fists as he was with a knife or baseball bat, Caesar competed ruthlessly in Sydney's underground fighting scene. He was a founding member and sergeant-at-arms of the Bandidos in Australia, and went on to become one of the most feared enforcers in the outlaw bikie world; it was once even alleged that he had a secret graveyard in the Snowy Mountains where he had buried his enemies. Now retired, Caesar lives a quieter life with Donna, his ol' lady and two of his children in their home in Cooma, NSW.
It's an okay read. I feel some of the stories are to be taken with a grain of salt. There seems to be a fair bit of big noting of himself and his gang.
Can not praise Caesar and Donna enough for this great book!
Very interesting story. Would make a great movie!
This book was hard to put down. It gave an interesting back story to the Milpera shootout. It was interesting to hear the connection with the Bandits shot at Hellfire.
If you like Underbelly or a good insight into OMG's, then you'll enjoy this book.
Hopefully there's a part two, or another book coming up.
I loved reading this book. Very interesting
an interesting read
bought for partner, he enjoyed it
Good, not Great.
I read "Wrecking Crew" straight after "The Enforcer", as that previous title was a real page-turner. Perhaps I should not have, and instead read "Bigwig", by Liam Houghlihan on Tony Mokbel as I'd planned.
I have not laughed out loud at some of the anecdotes in this book since "The Enforcer" and "Bloodhouse" by Darcy Dugan and Michael Tattlow.
However, as with Dugan and Tattlow's book, particulalrly the epilogue penned by Tattlow, this book has a feeling of sad regret and longing hovering throughout.
There is no miserable and pathetic end to the story as with "Bloodhouse", in fact quite the opposite, yet I can't but feel the strong urge to see this follow-up book as more a mlti-paged explanatory note and plea to the head of the Bandido's in the United States to have Campbell's name, honour and membership of the Bandidos restored. With the way the Bikie scene is now, I'm not so sure that would be a good thing. Hwoever, respect and honour where and when it is dues, and for Campbell it is long overdue.
While an excellent book in it's own write, and one cannot mention either works without referencing the obvious support and love of Caesar's family, especially wife Donna, it does not come close to the first for it's brazen audaciousness at self-promotion mixed with incredible fact, all in the name of what Chopper Read would calll "High Humour". That's a compliment, by the way Caesar.
Suffice to say, I do hope Campbell is heard loud and clear by his 'Brothers' in the States, and I parenthesise 'Brothers' as are they really brothers now? The face of the Bikie scene has changed dramatically and it is far more political and just as corupt and crime-riddled as the media, politics and yes even the police forces, despite what Jim "Diamond Jim" Phillips has to say to the contrary (part of a parole plea, I'd reckon in "Mr. Asia: Last Man Standing").
Highly recommended, and both should be bought. I do hope this is not the last we hear from Caesar and Donna Campbell.
