This is the story of a year spent in El Salvador with the FPL guerillas in the liberated zones - areas from which the military have been expelled, and which are frequently under attack from US backed government forces. This book is Wendy Shaull's diary of that period, in which she records the absurdity and madness that is war - and describes the beleagured people - the Salvadoran peasants who have lost their families and homes, and who live in a state of constant fear. The book describes the lives of the internationalist fighters and doctors - the revolutionary intellectuals who risk death or injury in their attempts to bring justice to a suffering nation. Above all this is the story of the meeting of two cultures, told from the point of view of an urban middle-class American woman.
