Summary:
"The revolution in Nicaragua was unique in that a large percentage of the combatants were women. This book is a study of these women and those who fought in the Contra counter revolution on the Atlantic Coast. It is a qualitative study based on 85 interviews with female ex-combatants in the Revolution and counter revolution from the 1960s to the end of the 1980s, as well as field observations in Nicaragua and the autonomous regions of the Atlantic Coast. It explores the reasons why women fought, the sacrifices they made, their treatment by male combatants, and their insights into the impact of the Revolution and counter-revolution on today's Nicaragua"-- Provided by publisher.
