General Barrios in Nostromo

By Joseph Conrad

General Barrios

During the conflict between Monterists and anti-Monterists, General Barrios heads out to Cayta to cut off sea access to Sulaco. Unfortunately, things start to get really dicey for his side right after he leaves, so Nostromo heads to Cayta to bring him back. When Barrios returns, he successfully defeats the revolutionaries.
