El Salvador At War: An Oral History

El Salvador At War: An Oral History
Edited by Max G. Manwaring and Courtney E. Prisk
National Defense University Press, 1988, 500 pp. $9.00 Purchase

First prepared as a project by General John R. Galvin when he was commander in chief of the U.S. Southern Command, and then encouraged and supported by Ambassador Edwin G. Corr and General Fred C. Woerner, this volume provides the perspectives of many of the key actors in El Salvador's civil war of the 1980s. Salvadoran military officers and guerrilla commanders, U.S. civilian and military officers assigned in El Salvador, Salvadoran civilian officials and civilian leaders-all of them interviewed by the editors and their colleagues-provide contrasting and complementary insights about a seemingly intractable conflict. A valuable source.
