LIBERTY OR DEATH
LATIN AMERICAN CONFLICTS, 1900-70
Autore: Philip Jowett
Dettagliata storia, illustrata con numerose rare fotografie, dei vari conflitti in America del Sud e America Centrale che hanno contrassegnato i prima 70 anni del 1900. Alcuni piccoli scontri combattuti con fucili, machete e vecchi mitragliatrici mentre altri furono conflitti in grande scala con eserciti equipaggiati di mezzi corazzati, pezzi d’artiglieria, aerei e centinaia di migliaia di soldati.
From the Banana Wars of the early 20th century through to the Football War of 1969, South and Central America has been a hotbed of revolutions, rebellions and conflicts as diverse as they are numerous. Some were small-scale affairs involving the poorly armed forces of Central American armies with rifles, machetes and a few aged machine guns. Others were full-scale conflicts involving sophisticated armies equipped with tanks, artillery and aircraft, and hundreds of thousands of troops. These wars often went largely unreported in the West, which was preoccupied with its own problems in fighting two world wars and dealing with Cold War tensions.
Fully illustrated with a wealth of rare photographs, this fascinating story sheds light on seven decades of a continent in conflict that is rarely covered in English.
