But it is the true story of one of the Cold War's misguided foreign policy adventures, one that helped to lay the groundwork for the lawless, murderous Central America of today.

It was nice to find this book in hardcover and perfect condition. I read this book when it was first published in paperback. I still have the beat up original, and some time later spent several years on the ground in Nicaragua.

This book reads like an adventure novel set in the wilds of Central America. But it is the true story of one of the Cold War's misguided foreign policy adventures, one that helped to lay the groundwork for the lawless, murderous Central America of today. If you want a thriller that gives you the smells and sounds and passions of that time, this is a good one.

Reads like a cloak-and-dagger book. Hard to put down.

This book concluded that the examined weaknesses of the Contras would lead to defeat. This turned out to be incorrect, since Contra activity was one of the reasons why Sandinistas were replaced by elections, and a shaky but real democracy. Such evaluations are common in war for those participating in conflicts tend believe that their enemies are more competent than they really are. However, there is useful information in this book.
