Come, you pack of morphine addicts; come to kill us in our own land, and I will await you standing strong at the head of my patriotic soldiers, not caring about how many of you there are...
— Augusto Sandino

Augusto Sandino was a Nicaraguan revolutionary who led a rebellion against United States occupation of Nicaragua. Active from 1927 to 1933, Sandino's life as a rebel began when he was exiled for attacking the son of a prominent government official, after which he was exiled to Mexico. In Mexico, he became involved with the anti-imperialist and communist revolutionaries that were taking shape in the post-Mexican Revolution political scene. Returning to Nicaragua, Sandino began a guerilla war against the Conservative government, where his effective but makeshift army ensured that the Liberal party were nearly capable of taking the capital until the intervention of the United States.

While the Liberals agreed to a ceasefire, Sandino declared war against occupying American forces, earning the solidarity from the Soviet Union and leftist factions within the United States. Sandino and his troops were able to disrupt American efforts to the point that the country pulled out from Nicaragua once the Great Depression began. In 1934, Sandino was assassinated by members of Nicaragua's National Guard and his forces were destroyed, although Sandino became a role model for later Latin American revolutionaries such as Fidel Castro and Che Guevara, and declared a national hero in 2010.
