Synopsis: An account of the fall of Nicaragua's Anastasio Somoza Debayle. It is based on the observations of a US official involved in diplomatic activity during the regime's final weeks in 1979. His words are accompanied by those of other participants such as citizens, peasants and National Guardsmen.
From Library Journal:
Few individuals could provide a more insightful view into the final days of Somoza's government in Nicaragua in 1979 than Lawrence Pezzullo, the U.S. ambassador. Unlike most authors who offer first-hand accounts, Pezzullo and his son Ralph tracked down other actors, high and low, interspersing their interpretations throughout. The wide-ranging interviews both strengthen and broaden Ambassador Pezzullo's account, providing a fitting complement to Bernard Diederich's Somoza, American-Made Dictator ( LJ 9/1/81) and Anthony Lake's Somoza Falling ( LJ 3/1/89). The authors' modest, forthright approach provides a readable, balanced narrative. Highly recommended.
