Paraguayan Military Train Headed to the Chaco War Front, 1930's

Train carrying Paraguayans to war.
(Date Unknown)

The Chaco War was fought between Paraguay and Bolivia over the disputed Gran Chaco region. During the war, both landlocked countries faced difficulties shipping arms and supplies through neighboring countries. Bolivia faced particular external trade problems, coupled with poor internal communications. Although Bolivia had lucrative mining income, and a larger better equipped army, a series of factors turned the tide, and Paraguay came to control most of the disputed zone by war's end.
