Very well researched,
This review is from: Simon Bolivar: A Life (Paperback)
This is excellently researched and provides exceptional detail on Bolivar's life and politics. There is little space dedicated to his military campaigns, however. If you want more detail on this aspect and a different angle on the South American Wars on Independence in the north of the continent, check out Conquer or Die! by Ben Hughes, a thoroughly entertaining account of the role played by Bolivar's British Volunteers in the campaigns of 1817-1821.
