An incredible memoir of a Venezuelan mercenary who served in the Ottoman army during World War I. Nogales was involved fighting Armenians and Russians in Van and Bashkale, and later against the British on the Palestine front. He was an eyewitness to the Armenian Genocide. For a critical account of Nogales, also see Kim McQuaid, "The Real and Assumed Personalities of Famous Men: Rafael De Nogales, T. E. Lawrence, and the Birth of the Modern Middle East, 1914-1937."
