Colegio Militar de la Nación.
His military expertise included intelligence and counterinsurgency, and he took the presidency of Argentina in a military coup that deposed Juan Carlos Onganía over his ineffective response to the Montoneros and other guerillas. His regime was marked by a protectionist economic policy that did little to overcome the inflation and recession that the country was undergoing at the time, and by the imposition of the death penalty against terrorists and kidnappers. In response to renewed anti-government rioting in Córdoba and to the labor crisis under his leadership, he was deposed by another military junta led by Alejandro Lanusse.
He died on June 17, 2015, at the age of 95.
