Publisher Comments:

Originally published in Puerto Rico in 1956 as Los derrotados, Cesar Andreu Iglesias's fictional depiction of a fateful Nationalist assault on a U.S. military installation in Puerto Rico is now available for the first time in English.

This tautly written chronicle uncovers the personal histories of three middle-aged revolutionaries as they plan to kill a U.S. general. Andreu's cool treatment of their political objectives does not obscure his compassionate recognition of their human limitations. Andreu makes clear his view that the Nationalist answer to Puerto Rico's problems had become an anachronism and that by the 1950s the union movement was better prepared to deal with the changes that industrial capitalism was thrusting upon the Puerto Rican people and their way of life. The afterword by Arcadio Diaz-Quinones provides a rich historical and literary context for The Vanquished.

Synopsis:

Originally published in Puerto Rico in 1956, this action-packed novel follows the lives of three men who plot a terrorist action against the US presence in Puerto Rico.
