Abstract

In the present work we have tried to recover the military thought of the maestre de campo of the army of Chile, Jerónimo de Quiroga, author of Memorias de los sucesos de la guerra de Chile written at the end of the 17th century and that remained unpublished, where this one was analyzing not only the reasons of the prolongation of so bloody conflict, criticizing the political labor of many governors, but also it represents a good example of how certain ideas came out concerning the problematic of the war.
