The War of the Pacific was a South American conflict that
took place from 1879-1884 in which the forces of Chile fought
against a defensive alliance of Bolivia and Peru. Also known
as the "SaltpeterWar, 10 cents War or Guano War", the war
arose from disputes over the control of territory that contained
substantial mineral-rich deposits. The wikipedia entry gives
a reasonable overview of the conflict
LINK Although the conflict was dominated by the Chileans
who had the larger army, there are colourful unforms on all
sides and as the battles were fought over many types of terrain
(and even had guerilla style attacks) it makes a great opportunity
for a lively campaign game.
