Pancho Villa. Una biografía narrativa by Paco Ignacio Taibo II

By Paco Ignacio Taibo II

La biografía no autorizada del más famoso de los revolucionarios.

Fiel al espíritu villista: «Se united states primero ésta -decía Pancho señalando los angeles cabeza- y luego éstos -tomándose los testículos.» Pancho Villa retrata inmejorablemente a un complejo personaje que siempre estuvo en constante fuga, incluso después de muerto.

Taibo II desgrana en estas páginas los angeles intensa vida de Pancho Villa, uno de los más grandes revolucionarios mexicanos.

La travesía de Villa, temeraria y desmedida, saturada de hechos heroicos y trágicos, siempre ha sido un símbolo atemporal de los angeles Revolución mexicana.
