This book constitutes a logical continuation of the first two tomes titled ‘Generals of Freedom’, which describe the life and work of eminent leaders in the struggle to free South America from the colonial yoke: Jose Francisco de San Martina and Simon Bolivar. The period in which these figures showed their mettle, as goes for any revolutionary period, was extremely complex and contradictory, therefore a portrayal of their achievements without describing the activities of historical characters living during their time, would clearly not give the complete picture. Even the most distinguished of characters could not overturn the full legacy of three hundred years of Spanish rule single-handed, bringing about vitally important changes for the Creole nation, in particular, winning political and economic independence.
