Don Jose de San Martin by Anna Schoellkopf
This insightful biography tells the story of San Martin, who was just as important in establishing the independence of Latin America as Bolivar, but did not share his fame. His contributions to the independence of Argentina, Peru and Chile are covered, but San Martin's history ends in 1822 when he resigned his command in favor of Bolivar, in order to avert a civil war. San Martin was a wise and heroic figure who and accurately assessed the limitations of republican government in Latin America, but his warnings remained unheeded.
