No, mi general

Zaida Cantera de Castro, A Spanish Army major, has written (with the help of Irene Lozano, a member of Parliament) the story of her abuse by a superior officer, under the title No, mi general. The author describes the abuse to which she was subjected by a lieutenant colonel during a deployment to Lebanon, culminating in his conviction and sentence to two years, 10 months' confinement. (He's now been conditionally released from prison.) The conviction was for abuse of power because Spanish military law does not specifically proscribe harassment. Details about the book can be found here (en español).
