Years ago I read a novel about this period in Mexico. I (like most people, including Mexicans) knew nothing about this war, but its effects linger today. I do know that my son-in-law’s grandparents escaped to Texas as newlyweds during this period because it was so dangerous to live in Monterrey.
Back in the 1940s, I read a Mexican novel in Spanish class called Pensativa by Jesus Goytortua about the Christeros rebellion. I'm not Catholic, but I found the novel very moving. I never forgot it.
