One of the great leaders in the wars for independence, he was a pivotal force in the liberation of Chile and Peru from Spanish rule." "In the first full English-language biography of San Martin in more than half a century, John Lynch shines new light on San Martin and on the story of Spanish America's revolutionary wars. Lynch offers a series of dramatic set pieces: the Peninsular War, in which San Martin fought the French and learned his military skills; the crossing of the Andes, when his army battled the forces of nature as well as enemy fire; the confrontation with imperial Spain in Peru; and the standoff with Bolivar which led to San Martin's resignation and exile in Europe. Based on the latest documentation, San Martin enhances our understanding of the modern history of Latin America and one of its most brilliant leaders."--BOOK JACKET."
