The book follows Miranda, Bolivar, O'Higgins, Lord Cochrane, Iturbide, San Martin and Pedro of Brazil as they toil through tragedy and triumph. Harvey manages to capture them all well and my interest never wavered through this sizeable work.
My only criticism is that the maps could be a bit better and more numerous and it definitely helps to have an understanding of Latin American geography.
Overall a fantastic overview of this dramatic period in Latin American history.
