I have built up quiet a collection of Falklands books over the years. This rates as one of the better ones. Tells a great personal story. Unfortunately there are a lot of errors (especially in the photo captions) which will annoy readers with more than a little knowledge about the navy and the Falklands, including one fantastic ship recognition mistook! There is also a lot of narrative along the lines of "wouldn't have happened if penny pinching idiot civil servants had fitted us with chaff" which, whilst it is understandable given the loss of the ship, is highly unlikely (and contradicts some of the other narrative in the book). Most naval officers also seem to speak as though they were in the 1920s, calling everyone "old boy", and starting sentences with "I say". Not my experience of NOs, especially those who were there. The other annoying (amusing?) error is in the chapter on the last hours of the ship, with the "events" on May 28th being pure fiction! Apart from these aspects this is a fascinating, well written and very interesting book and I wholeheartedly recommend it.
