This book is a fictional story set in the middle of the Mexican Revolutionary War (1910-1920). The book narrates the fictional revolutionary campaign of Colonel Demetrio Macías. The novel shows how ironic is the situation of the revolutionary forces where they have battled for years without having any real political position or even knowing why they were in either side of the war. Also shows how poverty was ruling in the Mexican towns to an extreme that even the revolutionary soldiers have money but the towns didn't have anything to sell, barely surviving, questioning how any good can be doing that revolutionary war to the civilians in the middle of the battling. Perfectly with this novel to show the seven deadly sins: Wrath, Greed, Sloth, Pride, Lust, Envy and Gluttony, where the main character, Demetrio Macías is guilty of each sin at some point in his life, but also the rest of the characters are guilty of some of those sins.
