    Rodolfo Walsh’s classic of true-life crime reporting, Operation Massacre is a detailed account of the night of June 9th, 1956, when about a dozen men in a Buenos Aires suburb were arrested on suspicion of conspiring against the military government, and taken to a garbage dump on the edge of the city to be executed. Seven of the men survived and Walsh tracked them down and tells their stories and the aftermath of that fateful night. 

    Beautifully translated by Daniella Gitlin, Operation Massacre has long been a celebrated piece of true crime reportage in Latin America and is now available in English for the first time.
