Summary: Los de abjo treats what is perhaps the saddest period in modern Mexican history, a period of aimless slaughter when a whole nation was plunged into strife by leaders who had few clear ideas of what they were striving for. The reader shares the same disillusionment that the author himself must have felt as he met leader after leader whose revolutionary zeal was merely a disguise for base passions and desires. - Preface.
Review: Spanish language edition of The Underdogs which deals with the plight and condition of the ordinary soldiers of the Mexican Revolution.
Notes: "We have prepared this edition for students who have completed their elementary training in Spanish. We have omitted several passages, especially in part 2, where the extremely realistic presentation of some episodes is unsuitable for classroom use."--Preface.
