Lei este libro cuando fue recien publicado, aun estaba en la Nicaragua de la revolucion Sandinista. Aun estaba la magia de lo nuevo, lo mistico de la guerrila.

Hermoso. Una crónica a la historia del triunfo del pueblo, un viaje a la guerrilla y un puño cerrado al corazón.

Recommends it for: revolution, guerillas, latin america, inspiration
one of the most inspiring memoirs i've ever read. the story of omar cabezas, who leaves a comfortable life as a university student to join the sandinistas and take up arms against a ruthless, despicable u.s. supported dictator (somoza). testament to the fact that no matter what the odds people can overcome. an excellent introduction to the story of the sadinistas and revolution in nicaragua. plenty of great detail about the arduous nature of everyday life for guerillas.

I read this book around 20 years ago, yet I remember clearly its humour in relating the life of a Sandinista guerrilla.

I have read this book twice..
For sure I will read the English version..

In my opinion this in not about the guerrilla it is about the human transformation, how we can became "el hombre nuevo".
