Does anyone know where I can find a copy of that letter?
Also, does anyone here know of any good books on Pinochet?
All references to the letter - that I could find - are from AP’s story reprinted in various forms by different newspapers, like Washington Post etc. No link to the actual copy of the letter were provided, which is kind of interesting.
There are seven or eight books about Pinochet in my local library, but they are all written from a far left point of view by generally leftist writers (as can be seen from their bodies of work), so I doubt they could be of more interest from a different point of view (like saving Chile from Marxist despot Allende) or any more informative than, for example, reading Pinochet entry in Wikipedia or one of the encyclopedias.
If you find something different, I’d appreciate you posting it here so it could be referenced to others who may be interested.
Both books are known as the definitive works on Chile and Pinochet and are regarded as treasure. Out of the Ashes is out of print and a good copy can easily go for several hundred dollars.
Contact me if you'd like to read them. B
