Overview

The Flight: Confessions of an Argentine Dirty Warrior by Horacio Verbitsky

Between 1976 and 1983, about two thousand political dissidents were pushed from airborne Argentine military planes into the waters of the Rio de la Plata or the Atlantic Ocean. At the start of their horrific descent into death, all were living and breathing. Many later washed up on Uruguayan beaches, bloated beyond recognition. Retired navy officer Lieutenant Commander Adolfo Francisco Scilingo only pushed out thirty personally. Nevertheless, it was more than he could live with. He approached Horacio Verbitsky and broke the military's code of silence about Argentina's "dirty war."
