Problemas en Paraíso: Juan Perón's Cabinet 1947
The year is 1947, and Juan Perón has completed six months of his presidency in Argentina. Perón is aided by a group of close advisors––mostly notably his wife Eva Perón. Together, the next decade will throw challenges at the new government that have been unparalleled in Argentine history. From ambitious economic development programs and the rise of political challengers, to foreign policy struggles between two superpowers at the beginning of the Cold War, the Cabinet will have a lot of challenges at hand. Perón may have the support of his people, but will he ultimately be able to revolutionize Argentina? ¡En Unión y Libertad!
