a former staff officer in the Cuban Rebel Army of Fidel Castro.
~~~ "At a time (1967) when the United States may well be committing herself to
'pacification' campaigns from Vietnam and Thailand to Santo Domingo, Macaulay's
book is an important contribution to our still scant knowledge of the whole
subject. As an example of how a six-year-long campaign by U.S. Marines can be
militarily successful and at the same time be a total political failure whose
adverse consequences still haunt the U.S. in Central America forty years later,
The Sandino Affair has no equal in its field."
