"For fifty years Ambrose Bierce attacked, relentlessly, the prejudices and preconceptions of mediocre people. The quality that distinguished his literary perormance was a kind of Faustian courage." The authors says Bierce was 'my friend and teacher' for 25 years and declares Bierce did not want to disappear, but actually was driven away by the machinations of false friends, etc. Using his connections with Obregon, De Castro visited General Villa in 1923, who told him Bierce had wanted to join Carranza so they turned him out.
