Beautiful production on the often mentioned, thorny episode in Brazil's imperial policy and perhaps one of the country's few openly military campaigns. The war was both the high point and the beginning of the end of the empire of Pedro II. The richness of this book lies in the photographs, sketches and illustrations selected by Salles that offer a view of the real everday war, rather than the official. Extensive texts that include some revisionist views. ENGLISH, PORTUGUESE, SPANISH AND TEXTS.
