I: both Paraguayan War and War of the Triple Alliance are valid well established names in the relevant literature. Wee Curry Monster talk6 February UTC What's more, the closer's rationale was not impartial: he added his own argument for the close rather than doing it impartially. This title covers the whole span of the war, from when the early days the conflict primarily involved small columns of a few thousand men seeking each other out in rugged and sparsely inhabited territory, through to the later Napoleonic-style positional battles fought at points of strategic importance. The war left Paraguay utterly prostrate; its prewar population of approximatelywas reduced to aboutinof which only about 28, were men. Drago arrived at Miranda in Septemberand Paraguayans had left once again. Wedged between Brazil and Argentina was tiny Uruguay, where power vacillated between two opposing factions.

Large portions of Paraguayan territories were to be taken by Argentina and Brazil at the end of the conflict, and the independence of Paraguay was supposed to be respected only for five years. By mid a riverine blockade by the Brazilian Navy severed Paraguay's access to the outside world, denying any import of war material. The prime responsibility for the War lay with Brazil, Argentina, to a lesser extent Uruguay, and of course, sadly, Paraguay itself. What we see, then, is a conflict that might have been expected to figure highly in studies of nineteenth-century warfare, and even to have received a certain amount of attention in its own right. Why do you care, Francis? Both sides suffered heavy losses in the campaign.

In three weeks, at the frontiers. Now we would need to see if there are any contemporary source availing the "revisionist" view of the s. The movements of troops, battlefield tactics, and the battles themselves are clearly described, with excellent eyewitness accounts of the soldiers included. The difficulty of fighting a common enemy with allies who each have different motives. What we shall concentrate on here is, rather, his analysis of Paraguayan nationalism. I actually make the point it is used but the predominant terms is the one I suggested.

Any sources for that archive and sword? At best, the source is good to know about different perspectives, but not as a reliable reference. Requesting admin oversight with a neutral comment and informing you of it is not harassment.

Not a single discussion as can be read in the archives dealt with any problems in the title. Why does he presents such a misleading list?

If there is something missing and you haven't specified what is "incomplete"please improve the article by adding the material, with references, to the article. A flawed diagram do not make the argument invalid. Of course, that was a result he opposed. The Economist editorial line have for years been hostile to Argentina, both for Argentinas internal economic policies and because of the Falklands dispute, where it has to be said The Economist has given full support to the goverment of Britian.

You claimed the term wasn't used, I presented a whole load of sources to show they were. You need to differentiate between fact and what is the opinion of a single author.

That is not the case, as the Mexican revolution almost certainly claimed more lives.

The War of Paraguay: Foreword

As the allied armies advanced, Solano Lopez ordered those same women to withdraw and destroy everything behind. From there, war would play out in three distinct phases. When the war began inthe armies were small, poorly trained, and badly equipped semi-professional forces.

On 11 Junethe naval Battle of Riachuelo the Brazilian fleet commanded by Admiral Francisco Manoel Barroso da Silva destroyed the powerful Paraguayan navy and prevented the Paraguayans from permanently occupying Argentine territory.

Alfredo Stroessnersupported by both the Colorados and the army, seized power. I'm simply curious about the wildly different estimates. Yet serious conflict was, in the end, avoided. In point 2 Ngram is revealed as flawed, yet WCM used that diagram to illustrate.

Nyttend wrote, "I've never heard this term before, despite studying the history of the period. In point 1 Lecen put forward a comment of WCM that might very well be inacurate but this case should be treated separately from previous comments yes this is not the place to refer to old disputes.

Curiously, Paraguay invaded Brazil to the north they could have gone the other way while Brazil marched south, ensuring that their favored candidate, Venancio Flores, came to power in Uruguay.

Paraguayan War

Paraguayan Pres. The Paraguayans continued to Nioaque and Mirandadefeating the troops of Col. This title covers the whole span of the war, from when the early days the conflict primarily involved small columns of a few thousand men seeking each other out in rugged and sparsely inhabited territory, through to the later Napoleonic-style positional battles fought at points of strategic importance.

There is no conflict known as the "War of the Triple Alliance against France", the phrase war of the Triple Alliance against France is eliminated by capitalisation as a proper noun.

A few errors have crept into the narrative but do not detract from the worth of this work. Therefore, surely a post-war Paraguayan census would not include any population still living inside that lost territory. Perhaps by that point unhinged, he ordered the executions of hundreds of people, including his own two brothers, two brothers-in-law, and scores of his officers.

Talk:Paraguayan War/Archive 2

My sole motive is ending the rather silly situation where people find this article via the redirect, as it is being kept at a name that is not predominant in the English language. Everyone understood what "War of the Triple Alliance" refered to, and the closing admin's decision to validate the idea that it is a "confusing" term only reflects a minority opinion presented by a specific group of users.About the Book.
