Retired navy officer Adolfo Scilingo is the first man ever to break the Argentine military's pact of silence, stunning his compatriots and the world by openly confessing to his participation in the hideous practice of pushing live political dissidents out of airplanes during Argentina's Dirty War.
Available for the first time in paperback, with a new preface by Judge Gabriel R. Cavallo on the upcoming military trials, and a new afterword by the author, Confessions of an Argentine Dirty Warrior (originally published as The Flight) includes the complete text of Scilingo's confession in the form of interviews given to Argentina's best-known investigative journalist, Horatio Verbitsky. An afterword by Juan Mendez, UN Secretary General Kofi Annan's Special Advisor on the Prevention of Genocide and former General Counsel for Human Rights Watch, places these events in their historical context.
"Horacio Verbitsky is one of the world's best and bravest journalists. His account of the atrocities committed by the Argentine military is stupefying."
(Hugh O'Shaughnessy, author of Pinochet: The Politics of Torture)
