La Guerra del Paraguay

The book “La Guerra del Paraguay” was written by English engineer’s George Thompsons (1839-1876) who worked to Paraguayan government, from 1858 to December 30th, 1868, when he was captured by the allied armies. As lieutenant-colonel of the Paraguayan army, he served the president Solano López as military engineer during Triple Alliance's War or War of Paraguay (1864 -1870). Thompson's book presents a meticulous testimonial description of the events that marked that war, with detailed information about the fortifications built in the Paraguayan territory.
