General from the jungle by B Traven( Book )

4 editions published between 1972 and 1995 in English and German and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

General from the Jungle is the sixth and last of B. Traven's legendary Jungle Novels, a fictional epic of the birth of the Mexican Revolution. In this masterpiece on guerrilla warfare, Traven tells the story of Juan Mendez, perhaps the youngest and greatest of the Indian rebel chieftains, who leads an ill-equipped and hungry band against the government forces. With brilliance and cunning, Mendez brutally attacks the federally protected fincas. The book is filled with marvelously drawn characters, yet the true hero is the army itself - illiterate, uneducated, and poor, but resourceful and dangerous. General is the culmination of a great story by a great storyteller
