Summary
  • "Casimiro Espadas regresa a México después de pelear en la guerra de Texas y se inserta en el mundo de la política en la capital del país, hasta que vuelve a ser arrastrado por la guerra cuando México no reconoce la independencia de Texas ni su anexión al territorio de Estados Unidos. En complicidad con Santa Anna y otros jefes militares, el ejército norteamericano busca apropiarse de Nuevo México, las Californias y Chihuahua, y comienza su sangriento avance hacia la Ciudad de México. Las lealtades se corrompen, las ciudades se consumen en rebeliones fatuas, las alianzas se traicionan, los amigos se asesinan, y los únicos atisbos de dignidad y valentía se revelan en hombres y mujeres lejanos al poder, que se convierten en héroes anónimos. Una espléndida novela plagada de muerte, odio y traición."-- Back cover
  • Casimiro Espadas returns to Mexico after fighting in the war against the Texas rebels and enters the world of politics in the capital city. However, when Mexico does not recognize the independence of Texas or the annexation of Texas into the territory of the United States, Casimiro is dragged into war again. In complicity with Santa Anna and other military officers, the United States army decides to take over New Mexico, the Californias and Chihuahua. They begin a bloody advance toward Mexico City. Loyalties are corrupted, cities are consumed by fatuous rebellions, allies betray each other, friends kill each other, and the only hint of dignity and bravery is shown by men, women and children who are far from positions of power and who become anonymous heroes. A novel plagued with death, hate and betrayal
