The sinking of the aged Argentine cruiser Belgrano - which as a US ship had survived Pearl Harbour - by the British nuclear-powered submarine Conqueror was the defining moment of the Falklands War. Here, author Mike Rossiter tells the definitive story of the act of war that became a political crisis and committed Britain to conflict. With access to the surviving crews of both vessels, Rossiter reconstructs the build-up to the deadly clash, from the political decision in Whitehall to send the Task Forces to the South Atlantic, to the military order which sent three deadly torpedoes into the Belgrano - taking 340 Argentine sailors down with her. --Naval and Military Press
