This chapter examines the impact of the Mexican revolution and counter-revolution on the oil business of Viscount Cowdray in Mexico. It suggests that this period represents a watershed in Cowdray's Mexican interest and describes the problems of El Aguila and the practical and political difficulties he experienced during the periods of revolution, counter-revolution, and civil war. This chapter also explores the implications of his relation with the Huerta regime for his business interests.
