Added DiffLines:

'''The War of the End of the World''' is a book written by Peruvian writer MarioVargasLlosa, telling the story of the War of Canudos.

In Brazil, a few years after the empire was abolished, some Christian fanatics, led by the messianic-like figure The Counselor and funded by some loyal monarchists, founded a community taking over private lands in the state of Bahia called Canudos, believing the end of the world is near and the Second Coming is imminent. The recently-formed Brazilian Republic is not happy about it and decides to settle things by force if necessary.

Vargas Llosaís first attempt at HistoricalFiction.
