When you click the link, it will first appear in Castellano, but if you wait a few seconds, it will change to English.

It is a sad and tragic chapter in Argentina's history, and one that is largely forgotten. The Navy and the Air Force bombed the crap out of the Plaza de Mayo, killing hundreds of people. Then a ground assault and an hours long battle in downtown BsAs followed. Perón survived, only to be overthrown and sent into exile by another coup 3 months later.
