The Men in the Jungle

by Norman Spinrad
Release date: 1967
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction

Cynical ousted dictator Bart Fraden and his military chieftan Willem Vanderling select a new planet to conquer by computer search and come up with Sangre, ruled by devotees of the Marquis De Sade calling themselves the Brotherhood of Pain, figuring it would be the ripest for revolution.

It is all right, but when they deliberately make things even worse to foment their rebellion, what begins is much more than they bargained for.

Inspired by the Viet Nam War and Che Guevara's cynical attempt to replicate the Cuban Revolution in Bolivia.
