?Chris Leuchars presents a straightforward, clearly written account of the Paraguayan War(1864-70), also known as the War of Triple Alliance.... To the Bitter End is a good introducrtion to the conflict.?-The Journal of Military History
?This is a military study of the bloody conflict pitting Paraguay against the allied forces of Brazil, Argentina, and Uruguay in the 1860s. Any work in English shedding light on Paraguay's first half century of independence, the role of its first president, Dr. Francia, its distinct autochthonous culture, or the collective will that enabled this small country to defy invaders even after half of its inhabitants had perished in the effort, is welcome. The book will satisfy those interested in actual military engagements, the technology employed, military formations, and other topics neglected by social historians....Recommended.
