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. Revolución Libertadora Volume 2 details the warlike actions of both sides day by day, along with the eventual resignation, exile and return of President Perón of Argentina.
