Clío La Guerra de los Cristeros. El triunfo de la muerte, capítulo II. (1998– ) Online
The first battles of the Cristiada seemed more like a 'hunt'. According to the Federal Army, the Cristeros did not have arms, organization or experience. 'We were very inexperienced, very young' - said the Cristeros. 'The war'- they thought - 'was like a party that would end in a few days'. However, that 'party' was prolonged. The Cristeros, equipped with arms, put up pitched, formal battles. Now they were no longer hunts, nor guerilla operations. They were bloody combats with hundreds of victims on both sides: it is the triumph of death.
