Summary
"This book continues the narrative begun by the author in the preceding volume. 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. Though concentrating on a combat narrative, matters of politics, business and international relations appear as necessary to understand the wars"--Provided by publisher
