Ortega’s successful coup in Nicaragua
The Nicaragua revolution surrounded the opposition to the Somoza dictatorship in the 1960s and the 1970s, the campaign which was led by Sandinista National Liberation Front which led to a violent driving out of the dictatorship in 1979. The effort of the FSLN, which governed from 1979 to 1990, to the society and economy of the country along socialist lines was very important. The revolution played a large role in foreign policies for Nicaragua, Central American, and America. The Nicaraguan Civil War waged between the FSLN and the countries and was one of the proxy wars in the Cold War.
