5.0 out of 5 stars Really hits the spot for an essential history
I really enjoyed John Fletcher's new book. He has done a brilliant job and I think he's hit the spot perfectly for the "essential histories" range from Osprey. It is a great introduction for anybody wanting to get into the Wars of Liberation. And great for me as a refresher, despite the fact I've already got a few other books in this space. I like the way John...

I really enjoyed John Fletcher's new book. He has done a brilliant job and I think he's hit the spot perfectly for the "essential histories" range from Osprey. It is a great introduction for anybody wanting to get into the Wars of Liberation. And great for me as a refresher, despite the fact I've already got a few other books in this space. I like the way John covered all the campaigns yet provided enough detail to whet the appetite for more. I particularly liked the biographies - they provide a real flavour for the period. A very good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read, 6 Feb 2014
This review is from: The Wars of Spanish American Independence 180929 (Essential Histories) (Paperback)
This is a fantastic fast paced introduction to the period, I thought I knew all the key personalities and battles for the period but John Fletcher has opened up new campaigns and characters I had not come across before if you are a war gamer or just interested in military history this is a great introduction to the personalities and campaigns that shaped a continent. Clearly and concisely written John Fletcher shines a light in to a little known period of history , a must buy for anyone interested in the military history of South America.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Introduction, 12 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Wars of Spanish American Independence 180929 (Essential Histories) (Paperback)
This entry in the Osprey Essential History series does exactly what it aims to do and provides a concise introduction to a fascinating period. The writing is clear and informative, and is backed up by an interesting selection of illustrations and maps. If, like me, you know little of the story of how the South American states became independent then this is a great place to start. Recommended.
