"Most important in this volume is a never-published 135-page 'summary' of the escape to Chile of the remaining revolutionary troops . . . . Recommended for libraries with Latin American collections."-Library Journal

"Highly recommended reading for political and military history reading lists and will engage anyone with an interest in the memoirs of a most remarkable man."-Midwest Book Review
