Summary

«Qué era indispensable olvidar? Que Tinoco fue inmensamente popular al comienzo, que muchos no hicieron nada para impedir los crímenes de la dictadura,  que contó con la connivencia de expresidentes, políticos y empresarios, que fue la intervenci6n de Estados Unidos lo que decidió el fin del reinado de los Tinoco y no una invasión patriótica desde Nicaragua.
 
El asesinato del general Joaquín Tinoco el 10 de agosto de 1919 precipitó, en pocas horas, la caída de la dictadura de su hermano Pelico. Durante treinta meses, los Tinoco gobernaron el país a sangre y fuego, a contrapelo de la posición oficial del presidente Wilson y de la crisis económica ocasionada por la Primera Guerra Mundial.
 
En El año de la ira, Carlos Cortés nos presenta un excepcional retrato de la época a medio camino entre la novela histórica, el ensayo político y el relato documental, husmeando en las meandros  del poder y en  los secretos del asesinato de Joaquín Tinoco. Una historia plagada de traidores y usurpadores.
 
ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

"What was essential to forget? That Tinoco was intensely popular at the beginning, that many people did nothing to stop the crimes of the dictatorship... that ex-presidents, politicians, and businessmen colluded with him, that it was the invasion by the United States that determined the end of the Tinoco's rein and not the patriotic invasion from Nicaragua."
 
The assassination of general Joaquin Tinoco on August 10, 1919, started, in few short hours, the fall of his brother's, Pelico's, dictatorship.  During thirty months, the Trinoco's governed the country by blood and fire, going against the official position of President Wilson and the economic crisis brought about by World War I.
 
In The Year of Fury, Carlos Cortés presents us with an exceptional portrait of the era, midway between a historical novel, a political essay, and a documentary, sniffing around in the meander of power and the secrets of Joaquin Tinoco's assassination. A story plagued by traitors and imposters.
