Praise for Ocosingo War Diary


“Telegraphic prose, each word composed with true mastery. I sincerely doubt that, among the innumerable works which have been and will be published about the events that so moved Mexico and much of the world, there is another that compares to Ocosingo in authenticity and literary value. Destiny saw to it that the right narrator was in the right place at the right time.”
Enoch Cancino Casahonda
