Publisher's Summary

If you want to discover the captivating history of the Mexican Revolution, then keep reading...

The Mexican Revolution was a defining moment of the 20th century. The Mexican fight for democracy, equality, and justice sent shockwaves around the world. No other episode in its history has left a deeper mark. It is a three-act drama full of politics, persecution, and war, not to mention earthquakes, signs in the sky, and even spiritualist sessions, while being populated by larger-than-life villains, international spies, and the universally known figures of Pancho Villa and Emiliano Zapata. In fact, our modern idea of “revolution” owes much to what happened in this country between 1910 and 1920.

In The Mexican Revolution: A Captivating Guide to the Mexican Civil War and How Pancho Villa and Emiliano Zapata Impacted Mexico, you will discover topics such as:

  • The Comet
  • The strong man of the Americas
  • Francisco and the spirits
  • Victory comes too soon
  • The Wicked Ambassador
  • Victoriano Huerta
  • Two Hurricanes
  • The Convention of Aguascalientes
  • The Presidential Chair
  • Huerta Strikes Back
  • The Horsemen of the Apocalypse
  • The Centaur and the General: Pershing’s Punitive Expedition
  • The Zimmermann Telegram
  • Aftermath
  • And much, much more...

Don’t have readers who speak Spanish - It’s the LAW!

This is not the first Mexican history that I have read for which the reader butchers some or all place names. In this case the reader was pretty good, but a review of Spanish pronunciations would have been the one of the first orders of buns ones if you are going to read a book about the history of Mexico.

Pronunciation

I understand if you have an accent saying words in another language but this guy mispronounced so badly that words/names were completely unrecognizable. I’m bilingual and know some of these names and had to rewind it a couple times. The story made up for it. It was clear and concise

Summary of Mexican Revolution

I knew nothing about the Mexican revolution before this short history. The audible was easy to listen to and provided sufficient detail. The brief introduction to Mexico's revolutionary history has inspired me to dive deeper into understanding Mexico's long history.

This definitely filled the gaps for me

I was going through another book of the entire history of Mexico. The topic of the revolution could not be covered in such great detail. I'm sure this title left out quite a bit it it filled in many gaps. I'll try a more exhaustive book later.

The reader could've made a little effort in pronouncing the names. It was massacre lol.

Interesting but very short

Doesn't sound like much is changed in Mexico in the last hundred years. Instead of revolutionaries, it's a drug cartel killing people off. And we still have thousands pouring across the border.

Interesting Listen

I have spent a considerable amount of time in Mexico and knew most of the revolutionary names, now I can connect them to the events. A well-written account of the events and the aftermath of the Mexican revolution.

Excellent Summary

Such a contrast between the turbulent and lawless way in which Mexico developed its government, and the orderly and lawful way it was done north of the border in USA and Canada. The legacy will live with Mexico for the foreseeable future with no hope of relief.

A never ending revolution.

More than interesting the narrative about the Mexican revolution which become a good source for a better understanding of the political, economic, and social events that influenced in some way what we see nowadays in this country. There are roots of abuse, corruption, violence, and betrayal among those people thirsty for power.

No Complaints

The audible was brand new so there were no issues with the condition and it arrived exactly on time. I had to purchase this audible for a class. In the context of the class, it was an informative short audible but not one that I would have to listen to if it weren't for the class.

Service!

Great audible! It is, in my opinion, a good translation that tries to convey the same feelings and emotions that the original copy, written in Spanish, conveys. It is definitely worth the money. Great product and fast service
