    "There will be war to the death against all Puerto Ricans."
    —Puerto Rico Chief of Police, E. Francis Riggs


    When it won the Spanish-American War in 1898, the US acquired Puerto Rico as a new "possession." The American who led the invasion, Gen. Nelson A. Miles, promised "liberty" to Puerto Ricans. He also promised "prosperity" and "the advantages and blessings of enlightened civilization."

    This never occurred. Puerto Rico was stripped of her land and natural resources by US banking syndicates. By 1934, the theft was so extreme that Puerto Ricans organized an island-wide agricultural strike. In response to this strike the Yale-educated Chief of Police, whose father owned the Riggs National Bank, promised that "there will be war to the death against all Puerto Ricans."

    It documents the murder of innocent Puerto Ricans; the bombing of Puerto Rican towns; the blackmail of Puerto Rico's governor; the beating, torture and execution of Puerto Rican prisoners; and the hiding of all this information from the American people.
    —Nelson A. Denis, author

    As a Puerto Rican myself, I decided to buy the book online and read it myself. Since then I had a difficult time putting down the book. Prepare to be shocked at the contents within. The book is filled with stories of corruption, murder, terrorism, torture, human experimentation and much more. The author backs up his claims though declassified FBI documents and written testimonials. Discover for yourself the shocking true history of Puerto Rico that the US government does not want you to know.
