This article seeks to analyze the reform of the conscription that occurred in Peru in the early twentieth century with the application of the Military Service Act 1898. Our proposal is that although the application of the law modified the old nineteenth-century practices of compulsive or negotiated constitution of the caudillistas armies, it could not be fulfilled with total strictness due to the administrative and coercive limitations of the State and the resistance of diverse social groups. Even so, the norm allowed the constitution of large military units in a bureaucratic and centralized manner.
