Second in the Spellmount Military Studies series is one of few works in English on this largely forgotten war. It reveals the unconventional tactics that allowed the poorly equipped Paraguayans to overcome Bolivia’s European-style standing army, which fought with tanks and bomber planes. The conflict embodied the changes that would take place in 20th-century warfare and hastened the demise of the League of Nations.
