Summary
  • " This book continues the narrative begun by the author in the preceding volumes. The author has uncovered many previously unknown sources to provide new information never published before. "--
  • This book continues the narrative begun by the author in the preceding volumes. This new work provides a clear and readable description of military combat occurring in Latin America for the years from 1982 to 2013. Although the text concentrates on 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 published before. The book traces the many insurgencies in Latin America as well as conventional wars. Among the highlights are the chapters on the Falklands War and the U.S. invasions of Grenada and Panama. One useful aspect of the text is an explanation of 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
