Product Description


"The Falklands fracas . . . deserves [to be recorded as a] military-diplomatic history, replete with maps, lists of dramatis personae, and endless footnotes. Happily two noted military analysts, Britain's Lawrence Freedman and Argentina's Virginia Gamba-Stonehouse . . . have conspired to produce one."--The Washington Times

Format: Paperback
As a former student of Freedman I eagerly acquired a copy of this book. Freedman, true to form is plodding and analytical desperately trying to remain impartial this, however works well with the pro malvinas sland provided by Gamba Stonehouse. All in all a good read particularly from the oftem missed diplomatic and political perspective of the conflict. Looking forward to Freedman's official history of the war being written now.

Excellent account of the war 2 Sept. 1998
By Edgardo J. Fernandez - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book tells the history of the Malvinas Battle of 1982 between Argentina and Great Britain. The tale of what happened in Buenos Aires, London, Washington and New York as the conflict unfolded is very interesting. Must be read by anyone who wants to have a clear understanding of the Battle and of the political motives behind the actors (Argentina's military junta, Margaret Thatcher's Conservative government and the Reagan Administration).

Not for hard core military history reader. 17 Sept. 1999
By - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you want to know every detail about diplomatic efforts and negotiations surrounding Las Malvinas (Falkland Islands) conflict, this is the right book. But if you are a hard core military history reader, this is not the book for you. The narrative doesn't have the magic to make you feel like you were there. It doesn't trigger the movie in your mind. There are no personal accounts of the soldiers who took part in the action. How they felt, what they saw and what they did. It doesn't have the details of the offensive and defensive actions for the battles. If you have read the books of Stephen E. Ambrose, you will understand what I'm talking about.
