When Mr. George F. Masterman, an ex-army surgeon of the British army, was hired by Francisco Solano López to work in the almost . Masterman, an ex-army surgeon of the British army, was hired by Francisco Solano López to work in the almost unknown Paraguay, he never imagined that he would be in the middle of a terrible war, accused of treason and tortured. Although he helped the Paraguayans in the war effort working in field hospitals, he was unjustly accused of treason, imprisoned and tortured by López, but luckily survived to tell the tale. It is the story of the Paraguayan War (1865 - 1870) told by a non-military.

The narrative continued–atrocities of lopez-my release. THE next day a great many prisoners were shot, close to where I was lying; they were principally native officers, the late occupants of the second guardia. All the afternoon the butchery went on ; some forty or fifty must have fallen. At one time the firing was so heavy that a sentry near me asked the sergeant if the cambās" (the Brazilians) were upon them. No, said he, carelessly; they are only shooting presos. Day after day the same atrocities were committed.

This book would be worth reading if only because so few participants on the Paraguayan side of the War of the Triple Alliance survived to tell the tale (George Thompson being a notable exception.) The fact that Mastersman survived harsh and unjust mistreatment at the hands of Francisco Solano Lopez makes this tale even more compelling. This is not a military history, but rather a revealing memoir of a man caught up in the whirlwind of South America's most destructive war. The book is copied from the original rather than reprinted, thus there are a few production flaws, spots and the like; but not enough to make any real difference.

Very well written and therefore easy to follow and understand. I find it amazing that the main subject of the book, Lopez can still be hailed as a hero in Paraguay.

"Seven Eventful Years In Paraguay: A Narrative of Personal Experience Amongst the Paraguayans" is another from a suite of important books written by foreigners involved with Lopez (Paraguayan Dictator) in the so-called `War of the Triple Alliance'. Masterman, originally employed by the Paraguayan Government (Lopez Snr) as a Military Apothecary in 1861, tells a story of the state of affairs he witnessed and was exposed to during his time there. Arrested and imprisoned on trumped up charges, Masterman, like many others, was tortured in the most heinous ways (cepo de uruguayana) on the orders of Lopez and his fearful minions. Somewhat controversial, Masterman's account may not be the most accurate in terms of overall proceedings of the war, but does provide one of the best insights into the treatment measured out by this abhorrent Dictator.

This facsimile, by Kessinger Publishing, is of an original Second Edition (1870). It contains a number of marks from the original; however it is fully legible except for the map which has not been copied in its entirety.

Well worth reading for all those interested in Paraguayan/South American history or, in particular, the War of the Triple Alliance. Unless you are able to find an original (and pay the high cost) this publication is well worth acquiring.
