Thompson, an English Civil Engineer, was originally contracted to build the railways in Paraguay, however, after the outbreak of war he became a Colonel in the Paraguayan army.It contains a detailed account of the war from a technical point of view and provides extremely valuable information on how the battles were fought and the conditions under which many suffered.The book is a facsimile of the original 1869 publication and, while readable, it unfortunately contains many blotches/marks and also a number of pages appear to have been poorly scanned. The maps, which form an important part of the text, have not been properly reproduced and you will need to get your hands on an original (or better copy) and photocopy them for your own use.While this facsimile is disappointing, the information presented is very important and anyone interested or researching this war or Paraguayan history in general should buy this book. - D.
