Amazing story and very well written!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Conquer or Die: Wellington's Veterans and the Liberation of the New World (Kindle Edition)
I got this book recommended by a friend. Being a Venezuelan myself and living in England, the story told in this book happens to be incredibly interesting.
Absolutely no lack of action while making a great effort to stick to historical references. Definitely a MUST READ!

Ben Hughes lived and worked in Latin America and is married to a Colombian and thus, I assume, his command of Spanish must be above average yet he refers throughout the book to the rebels' representative in London as Mendéz when surely the Hispanic surname is Méndez, of sephardic origin. As a venezolano, please enlighten me - many thanks¡
