Pressestimmen

"Lesley Gill has produced an in-depth expose of the militaristic mentality, socio-ethnic tensions, and outrageous atrocities of the empire's Praetorian Guard. Insightful and richly researched, a work of superior quality."--Michael Parenti, author of The Terrorism Trap and The Assassination of Julius Caesar " "Lesley Gill's study of the premier military training operation in the Americas is a treasure trove of histories that will provoke a long overdue debate about the values and limits of U.S. engagement in the region."--Robin Kirk, author of More Terrible Than Death: Massacres, Drugs, and America's War in Colombia
