Unfortunately this book is full of errors, at least in the pages I was able to review via GoogleBooks. The sections on the Sandino rebellion are especially egregious -- e.g. the author has Sandino marrying Blanca Arauz during the Civil War; says San Rafael del Norte is near the Río Coco; and claims that US citizens owned big estates in the northwestern part of the country. None of this is accurate. The account of the Battle of Ocotal evinces scant familiarity with this event. Disappointingly laden with errors and infelicities, at least in the pages available for review, this appears to be a shoddy piece of scholarship.
