South American armies

Post by casimiro » 13 Dec 2021 20:59

Does anyone have any information (with sources) on the size of any South American armies in 1914? I am particularly interested in Ecuador, Uruguay, and Venezuela, but information on any other South American army would be welcome.

It is in German, but here are the entries from Heere und Flotten aller Staaten der Erde, published in April 1914.
