GUERRAS CIVILES II: LA INDEPENDENCIA DE LOS VIRREINATOS DE LA MONAROU?A ESPANOLA: Volume 2

As a result of the defeats suffered by Spanish troops in the early years of that conflict, and perceiving the weakness of the regency that had assumed the Spanish government, several Latin American leaders led various movements of liberation between 1809 and 1810.
