1-225670 Sapienza, Antonio Luis The Chaco War, 1932-1935 - Fighting in Green Hell Concise history of first modern conflict in South America, with the full background, the military mobilization and deployment of the Bolivian and Paraguayan armed forces, and all of the battles. Includes an exclusive collection of photographs from the archives of the Institute of History and Military Museum of Ministry of National Defence of Paraguay, and several private archives in Paraguay and Bolivia.

Two very different military concepts faced each other: the German General Hans Kundt, a First World War veteran, hired by the Bolivian Government, was a proponent of the typical Prussian tactics of front attacks regardless of cost, but also of the strategy of taking and controlling as much territory as possible without annihilating the enemy.

The Paraguayan Lieutenant-Colonel Jose Felix Estigarribia (later promoted to Colonel, and then General), took his specialization courses in Chile and France, and was a proponent of tactics of using trench warfare for defense, and flanking the enemy when in the offensive.

Eventually, Estigarribia's ideas proved their worth -- partially because his forces managed to capture huge stocks of Bolivian arms and ammunition throughout the war. 1 vol, 72 pgs 2020 UK, HELION AND COMPANY

1-225680 Badri-Maharaj, Sanjay Trinidad 1990 - The Caribbean's Islamist Insurrection On 27 July 1990, a radical Afro-Trinidadian Islamist group, the Jamaat-al-Muslimeen, led by Imam Yasin Abu Bakr -- an Afro-Trinidadian convert to Islam previously known as Lennox Philip, and a former policeman -- launched an armed insurrection with 113 of his followers. Their attack quickly sacked the entire leadership of the local government: the then Prime Minister of Trinidad, Arthur N.R. Robinson, most of his cabinet and several opposition Members of Parliament, plus the staff of the government-owned television and radio networks were held hostage for six dramatic days. The Parliament Building, the television, and radio studios were occupied by armed insurgents and were severely damaged during the standoff with security forces that ensued. The Trinidad and Tobago Police Service collapsed within the first hour of the insurrection, abandoning the capital city, Port of Spain, and the military took hours to assemble a viable fighting force.

This book details the background, the insurrection, and the military operation that crushed it. Illustrated with maps, color profiles, and more than 100 authentic photographs from local archives. 1 vol, 68 pgs 2020 UK, HELION AND COMPANY
