A Good Introduction,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Wars of Spanish American Independence 1809-29 (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.
