This is the biography of the Carnation Revolution hero, Salgueiro Maia, and one of the first titles from the collection Portuguese Great Lives, published by Pato Lógico, in partnership with The Portuguese Mint and Official Printing Office (INCM).

Once upon a time, there was a captain who learnt the art of doing war, but he preferred peace to read, live and be happy. Of war he knew all or almost. In other times, he would be a kight, because he was from the cavalry, but times changed and his horse was now a war tank, a big and powerful one that blows fire and knocks down houses, headquarters and walls, when necessary, when peace is won.

Great Portuguese Lives is a collection that results from a partnership between Pato Lógico and The Portuguese Mint and Official Printing Office (INCM), and it is dedicated to the lives of important Portuguese figures, who stand out in various domains of our History.
