As gripping as "The Thousand-Hour Day" and "The Naked and the Dead," "The Glory and the Vain" presents a saga of how a great nation can be guided to devastation when her ruler assumes risks way too high when he seeks to become another Napoleon Bonaparte. That was the case when Paraguayan President Francisco Lopez sought great military glory through waging war simultaneously with Brazil, Argentina, and Uruguay in the 1860's. Against the backdrop of this conflict is a story of Colonel Ramon Valdez, a Paraguayan Army officer whose loyalty to his President becomes strongly tested by his seeing the war take a horrendous toll on his family and country. The test of loyalty takes Ramon from Paraguay's capital to remote jungles in her northern regions. As readers go along with the Colonel on the journey, they will relive the drama of the War of the Triple Alliance.
