By Alfredo da Mota Menezes

A Guerra do Paraguai foi o maior conflito armado entre países da América do Sul. Na segunda metade do século XIX, Brasil, Argentina, Uruguai e Paraguai envolveram-se em um embate longo e sangrento. Uma das principais teses a respeito da origem do conflito alega que o imperialismo inglês foi o responsável pela guerra. Teríamos sido bonecos manipulados pela grande potência britânica. Lançada por um historiador argentino e repetida cansativamente por manuais e livros de divulgação, a ideia dos maquiavélicos ingleses e dos inocentes latino-americanos parece uma verdade indiscutível. Mas não é. Em A Guerra é nossa o historiador Alfredo da Mota Menezes, doutor em História da América Latina e especialista no tema, constrói uma narrativa que explica, por outro ângulo, quais, afinal, foram os motivos que desencadearam os combates. Para isso, o pesquisador se vale de dados e informações documentais que revelam, de modo incontestável, os conflitos internos dos quatro países envolvidos, que explicam as motivações locais do conflito. Livro corajoso, destinado a reescrever importante página da nossa história.
