Inhaltsangabe: The story of how a criminal Shangri-La almost happened
In 1981, a small but heavily armed force of misfits from the United States and Canada set off on an unlikely mission: to invade the impoverished Caribbean island of Dominica, overthrow its government in a coup d'etat, and install a new bought-off prime minister. For two years, the gangleaders recruited manpower, wooed investors, forged links with the mob, stockpiled weapons, and planned their assault. They called it Operation Red Dog. They were going to make millions. All that stood in their way were two federal agents from Louisiana on the biggest case of their lives. Bayou of Pigs tells a remarkable story of foreign military intervention, revolutionary politics, greed, treachery, stupidity, deceit, and one of the most outlandish crimes ever attempted: the theft of a nation.
Stewart Bell (Toronto, ON) is the author of Cold Terror (978-0-470-84056-6).
From the Inside Flap: This is a true story about an idyllic tropical island and the mercenaries who set out to steal if for profit and adventure.
In 1981, a small but heavily armed force of misfits from the United States and Canada set off on a preposterous mission: invade an impoverished Caribbean country, overthrow its government in a coup d'??tat, install a puppet prime minister, and transform it into a crooks' paradise.
Their leader was a Texas soldier-of-fortune type named Mike Perdue. His lieutenant was a Canadian Nazi named Wolfgang Droege. Their destination: Dominica.
For two years they recruited fighting men, wooed investors, stockpiled weapons and forged links with the mob, leftist revolutionaries and militant Rastafarians. They called their invasion Operation Red Dog. They were going to make millions. People were going to die. An entire nation was going to suffer. All that stood in their way were two federal agents from New Orleans on the biggest cast of their lives.
Set in the Caribbean, Canada and the American South at the beginning of the end of the Cold War, and based on hundreds of pages of declassified US government documents, as well as exclusive interviews with those involved, Bayou of Pigs tells a remarkable tale of foreign military intervention, revolutionary politics, greed, treachery, stupidity, deceit and one of the most outlandish criminal stunts ever conceived: the theft of a nation.
