This chapter discusses the organization of the Ejército Libertador del Perú and the political consequences brought about by its creation. It is contended that the military aspects of San Martín’s American plan succeeded, since he was able to enter Lima in 1821. However, it also argues that the idea of ‘constituting one single’ American nation failed, partly because San Martín decided to create a sovereign, independent state in Peru and partly because the Chilean officers in Peru became increasingly disenchanted from his Protectorate.
