Operation Ogro: The Execution of Admiral Luis Carrero Blanco

In December 1973, the car of Admiral Carrero Blanco, Franco's political heir, was blown up. In this collective interview, the four avowed killers, members of the Basque nationalist movement, recall the meticulous planning of this operation. A gripping story, translated and ably introduced by a well-known American novelist and writer, Barbara Probst Solomon. The moral ambiguity of the entire episode is something the reader must deal with.
