Scheina's three books are the best sources in English for an overview of Latin American military history. Each book is well footnoted and has an extensive bibliography. The Naval History volume covers riverine warfare, marine corps operations, and naval aviation, often overlooked in general naval histories. The earlier Naval History is the better written of the three books. (I suspect Scheina was told that he wouldn't get tenure if his writing continued to be pleasurable to lay readers.) Hagedorn's Latin American Air Wars is the best source for air operations.
