  • Description

    The commander of a Sandinista training camp near the Nicaraguan border with Costa Rica is confident his troops will defeat President Somoza's national Guard. But at the bush training camp his troops are often very young. They receive only four days' training, and spend just one afternoon firing on the rifle range before going into battle. There appears, however, to be no shortage of volunteers, with hundreds of young rebels arriving at the bush training camp every week. This report from John Alpert.
