Synopsis

This book continues the narrative begun by the author in the preceding volume, Wars of Latin America, 1899-1941. This new work provides a clear and readable description of military combat occurring in Latin America for the years 1948 to the start of 1982. (In an unusual peaceful lull, Latin America experienced no wars from 1942 to 1947.) Though concentrating on a combat narrative, matters of politics, business and international relations appear as necessary to understand the wars. The author has uncovered many previously unknown sources to provide new information never before published. The book traces the many insurgencies in Latin America as well as conventional wars. Among the highlights are the chapters on the Cuban and Nicaraguan insurrections and on the Bay of Pigs invasion. One goal of the text is to explain why of the many insurgencies appearing in Latin America, only those in Cuba and Nicaragua were successful in overthrowing governments. The book also helps explain why even unsuccessful insurgencies have survived for decades, as has happened in Colombia and Peru.

Rene De La Pedraja lived in Latin American for many years, and devoted that time to the research and preparation of numerous publications. He is currently is a history professor at Canisius College in Buffalo, New York, USA.
