Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After ten years of civil war, Alvaro Obregon was the 'last man standing.' This is a very good book detailing Obregon's path from before the outbreak of hostilites, when he was a small farmer in Sonora, and concludes when he takes power from Carranza and becomes President of Mexico. For anyone wanting a good grounding in the Mexican Revolution, this is a must read.

Format: Paperback
in 1983 i was ist published in Irish advacate by Jim O'Connor(archie bunker-carroll O'Connor's uncle )Obregon of Mexico(Obregon means O'Brian) he was very proud of his Irish and Indian heritage.Obregon's story is literally too good to be true,not only did he raise a Mayo and yaqui army from the ground up his personal exploits of leadership and chrisma are phemonal-see Born to raise hell-Edward Tex O'Reilly world's greatest soldier of fortune by Lowell Jackson Thomas.
Hall give an excellent account of his cerebal economic genius as well as combat leadership.
incrediably clowns as villa and zapata are far well know-even Anthony Quinn who's mecican of irish decent seed unawake of Obregon I orginally was interested in Obregon as part of "wld geese" soldiers of irish decent as i had book 1926 President Obregob a world reformer by Professor Emile Dillon though techinally Obregon was not one of the Wild Geese.
Obregon was also what we'd call a Liertarian today along the Milton friedman John Stossel model.He lost his arm in combat and still was an incredilbe i armed pool player and great shot(born to raise hell)Linda B. Hall has done a great job!!!
