Revoluci n Libertadora - or the Liberating Revolution - is the name by which the military dictatorship that ruled Argentina is known after overthrowing the constitutional president, Juan Domingo Per n, closing the National Congress, deposing the members of the Supreme Court, the provincial and municipal authorities and university and commissioning the entire Judicial Power through a coup that began on September 16 1955 and that, after more than two years, transferred the government to President-elect Arturo Frondizi, on May 1 1958, who would be overthrown in 1962.
The preparations for the coup of September 1955 were intense and very careful, since the plotters did not want to repeat the mistakes made in the events of June. For this coup, the collaboration of several important army units was finally obtained, in addition to the Navy and the Air Force. Revoluci n Libertadora Volume 2 details the warlike actions of both sides day by day, along with the eventual resignation, exile and return of President Per n.
