He and his followers were stationed at the headquarters of the Chilean government and were ready to stand up to the coup plotters and fight to the death, but when Salvador Allende was finally found dead when they attacked the palace. According to Gunter Wessel, Chile that day lost not only its beacon of hope, but also its freedom for decades to come. The Allende family fled Chile to Venezuela and some to Cuba, never reuniting as they once did.
On the back cover of The Allende we read:
The Reds began to fight for democracy and against the big landowners. This dream came true when his grandson Salvador Allende Gonz .lez was elected President of Chile in 1970. But just three years later, Pinochet, along with the army, bombed all hopes. Chilean intellectuals were destroyed in prison, or escaped into exile.
