It lasted from 1879 to 1884, and was fought over Chilean claims on coastal Bolivian territory in the Atacama Desert. The war ended with victory for Chile, which gained a significant amount of resource-rich territory from Peru and Bolivia.
Chile's army took Bolivia's nitrate rich coastal region and Peru was defeated by Chile's navy. Book includes maps, scale plans, period drawing, and photos.
