I know Julian personally and would like to hear his story first hand. He's a great guy and we met in a mutual friend's wedding in France. I was living in Londin during the F.W. and this brings back lots of memories from that time period. I'm a Royal Norw Naval Officer myself.

Another Falklands book to add to my collection. This gives a good view from the No. 3 Commando from Julian Thompson.

Worth getting if like me you enjoy factual information on this period

No Picinic is a first person account of the battle for Falkland Islands...written in depth by the commander of 3 Commando .
Which makes it a "winner". Julian Thompson is an excellent and makes this book a true refernace book. A must have a must read...it is one of the "rare books" that take you into the battle. Something you wont forget! A must!
