This account of the life of Pancho Villa during the Mexican revolution is related through the supposed adventures of the Swedish mercenary, Ivar Thord-Gray.The book covers the familiar terrain between 1910-20 of the Mexican uprising and the particular idiosyncrasies of Don Venustiano Carranza, Villa, and other key participants. But more important, it places some of Villa's actions in the context of a larger drama of international intrigue surrounding the warring powers during World War I. According to Arrioja Vizcaino, it was after Villa's defeat at Celaya that German agents offered the general money and equipment to attack a U.S. city. Villa moved against Columbus, NM, mostly in retaliation for America's support of Generals Carranza and Alvaro Obregon. The Germans hoped that a major Mexico-U.S. clash would keep America from intervening in the European theater during WWII. This is a fine book that breaks new ground with its use of Swedish sources. Recommended for larger public and academic libraries and bookstores. Jos? O. Diaz, Ohio State Univ. Lib., Columbus
