Commander Dante refers to Bernabe Buscayno, who became military leader of the New People's Army in the Philippines in October 1970 during the First Quarter Storm. William Chapman refers to Dante as one of the "ideological Huks."
Capture, release, and assassination attempt
Dante was captured in 1977, but released from jail by President Corazon Aquino in 1986. The next year, the 43-year-old Dante survived, but suffered hospitalizing wounds, in an ambush that killed two other people.
