On March 19th 1976 Argentine society listened attentively as the opposition leader established his position towards what appeared to be imminent: a new coup d’état. The armed phenomenon in Latin America —particularly in Argentina— had begun several years earlier in Cuba, when the new leaders decided to export their revolution, aimed not a liberating countries from their reigning dictatorships, but rather at promoting a Marxist-Leninist revolution. In this book, Yofre has gathered unpublished documents that prove this, some of them from the archives of the former Czechoslovakian Minister of the Interior.
