Reviews - What do customers think about Los Rojos de Ultramar?

Fascinating story but parts missing  Jan 20, 2006
Soler tells an exciting and enlightening story about the Republican exile from Franco's Spain. While the horrors Franco created are not surprising, the despicable treatment the French afforded their guests and their unwillingness to recognize -- even today -- what they participated in are astounding. And while there were obviously political as well as humanitarian motives behind it, the kindness Mexican President Lazaro Cardenas and his ambassador in France showed towards the exiles is heartening and makes for a story worth learning.

There are unfortunately a few important omissions from the book. Soler does not explain Arcadi's backstory, which is obviously crucial to the outcome of the book. He is also sketchy on why the plot at the end fails to kill Franco. Both of these definitely stem from the fact that even Soler, with his good investigative skills, couldn't figure this out. But these points notwithstanding, Soler's story is a compelling and worthwhile read.

Soler cuenta una historia fascinante e iluminante del exilio de los republicanos de la españa franquista. Aunque los horrores que hizo Franco no son sorprendentes, el tratamiento odioso que les dio los franceses a sus huéspedes y su rechazo de reconocer -- hasta hoy -- en lo que participaron son pasmosos. Y aunque fue causado por motivos políticos además de los humanitarios, la amabilidad que el presidente de México Lázaro Cárdenas y su embajador en francia les enseño es alentadora y hace una historia que vale la pena aprender.

Desafortunadamente, hay unas omisiones importantes del libro. Soler no explica la historia antecedente de Arcadi, que es obviamente crucial al resultado del libro. También no explica bien porque el complot al fin falló a matar a Franco. Las dos obviamente provienen del hecho que hasta Soler, con sus buenas habilidades investigativas, no lo pudo determinar. Pero sin embargo de estos puntos, la historia de Soler es irresistible y vale la pena leerla.
