A comprehensive account of every major war and battle fought in the Americas, this revised edition of the award-winning Wars of the Americas offers up-to-date scholarship on the conflicts that have shaped a hemisphere.

When it was first published in 1998, Wars of the Americas: A Chronology of Armed Conflict in the Western Hemisphere was the only major reference focused exclusively on warfare in all its forms in North, Central, and South America over the past five centuries. Now this acclaimed resource returns in a dramatically expanded new edition.

For its second edition, Wars of the Americas has been doubled in size to two full volumes: the first covers all wars and major battles from the earliest Spanish conquests through the 18th-century colonial rivalries that gripped the hemisphere. The second volume covers covers the American Revolutionary War and all subsequent conflicts up to the present. In addition to exhaustive updating throughout and a deeper focus on the historical context of each conflict, the new edition includes new coverage of the present-day drug cartel wars, international terrorism, and the ever-evolving relationships between the United States and the nations of Latin America.

  • Thousands of dated entries in two complete volumes, covering major battles and engagements of every war in the Western Hemisphere over the last 500 years
  • More than 200 sidebars offering insights on famous commanders and such important topics as weapons development, epidemics, and more
  • More than 90 maps detailing the course of specific battles, invasions, and assaults
  • 271 illustrations—a spectacular collection including many depicting little-known campaigns, soldiers' living conditions, everyday citizens and combatants caught up in conflict, and more
  • Two bibliographies (one for each volume), organized by chapter and in some cases subchapters to allow for very targeted resources easily available for readers
