    Los De Abajo means "those from under". More specifically it means the peasantry, or the under-dogs. It's the story of Demetrio Macias, a simple, peace-loving Mexican Indian forced by tyranny to join Villa's army. His unceasing courage in battle after battle earns him promotions to the status of General. But, as the war wears on, he becomes disillusioned as his rebels' "cause" suffers demoralizing defeats. In addition, he finds evidence of corruption appearing among his superiors.

    Este libro es un clásico de la literatura mundial y posee el mérito histórico de haber iniciado la novela sobre la Revolución Mexicana de 1910; la obra muestra desde dentro las fuerzas de lo que entonces se llamó "la bola": los desposeídos levantados para la revuelta. La novela arranca con el grupo armado de Juchipila, un poblado al sur de Zacatecas, y cierra, como epílogo de la narración y un símil de la suerte misma de la Revolución, cuando la ciudad es tomada por las tropas carrancistas.
