Reviews

When Argentina pursued its long held territorial claims to the Falklands and South Georgia, it totally underestimated the strength of the British reaction. From the re-taking of South Georgia to "The Long Walk" culminating in the decisive battle for Port Stanley; the destruction caused by the Argentinian Skyhawk fighters with their Exocets in "Bomb Alley", to the British Harriers regaining air supremacy with their deadly Sidewinder missiles; the bombing of Port Stanley airstrip to the sinking of the General Belgrano; this was a war in which one nuclear powered submarine held an entire navy at bay. Seamlessly documented on land and sea by frontline ITN footage the programme captures the crucial points of this forty-one day war and the bloody battle over this remote island. FALKLANDS WAR Chapters include: Argentina Invades; Britain Mobilizes; Operation Paraquet; Air-Sea Battles; Breakout; Taking Port Stanley. BONUS FEATURE: SPECIAL FORCES Wreaking havoc behind enemy lines.. counter terrorism.. political assassination.. destabilising governments.. hostage rescues - these are the domain of the world's special forces. Highly trained strike teams capable of operating in the harshest climates, these small elite insertion units eagerly go where regular forces cannot, conducting high risk operations of strategic importance to their governments. ITN's footage tells the history of the SAS from its beginnings in World War II through the breathtaking storming of the Iranian Embassy and more recently its exploits in Kuwait. The film reveals the special activities of the Special Boat Service, The Soviet Spetnaz, "Mad Mike" Hoar's mercenaries operating in the World's hot spots, America's tenth parachute Division and the Delta Force's failure to rescue the hostages in Iran. SPECIAL FORCES Chapters include: British S.A.S.; British S.B.S.; American A-Teams; Soldiers of Fortune; Soviet Spetznaz; Parachute Battalion.

If you are interested in the Falklands War then this is one of the few documentaries that exist on it and is a fairly worthwhile watch. Was of moderate interest and does feature some actual footage of the conflict and a run-down of what happened.

Does not last very long and was an ITV production for TV, so not up to the standards of a modern documentary.

If you are interested in the Falklands and like a good drama I would recommend The Falklands Play [DVD] as a very enjoyable watch.

This DVD is about 40 minutes in length. It provides a sound snapshot of the Falklands conflict. It covers the reasons why both Argentina and Britain went to war in the first place, the key battles, the key British commando battalions involved and unseen footage of the war. For example the Argentinean air raids on 'bomb alley' which I have never seen.

Was a nice overall view of the war , but would have liked a bit more detail and perhaps more interviews with the regulars and not just the officers.

This DVD gives a true account of what life was like for our poor brave soldiers of today,when they tried to win back a part of our country so far from home that was taken from us. A true honest film with nothing taken out.
