Don North's 'Yesterday's Enemies' DVD

September 27, 2009

In 1983, war correspondent Don North went behind guerrilla lines in El Salvador and spent two months in the mountainous Guazapa region, one of the bloodiest battlegrounds of a civil war that was pushed by President Ronald Reagan as a key front in the Cold War.

Now, 26 years later, North returned to the site to find survivors of the conflict and trace how their lives have changed. The result of that trip is a new documentary, “Guazapa: Yesterday’s Enemies.” To watch a trailer, click on the screen below. To purchase this new DVD (or North’s earlier documentary on the war, “Guazapa: The Face of War in El Salvador,”) look below the screen.
