Product Description

The fight at Goose Green in May 1982 was the most famous battle of the Falklands War, which saw British and Argentine troops struggle for control of the Falkland Islands. In the wake of the shock Argentine invasion, Britain sent a hastily assembled Task Force to the South Atlantic charged with the job of restoring British sovereignty. The Argentine positions at Goose Green were thought to pose a threat to the British advance across the Islands and troops from the Parachute Regiment were sent to deal with it. After 12 hours of bloody fighting, the Argentine position was finally overrun and the British advance on the capital Port Stanley could continue. Moving pictures were beamed back to Britain of the aftermath of the battle, bringing home the stark realities of combat - a sobering reminder amid the political rhetoric and jingoism. DISC TWO - THE FALKLANDS WAR It is twenty five years since Argentine forces invaded the Falkland Islands. Within three days, a British task force had been mobilised and was on its way to the South Atlantic on a mission to restore the islands to British control. Soon, harrowing images that demonstrated the terrible realities of war were being beamed back to the United Kingdom. This programme is a powerful record of a war that cost more than a thousand lives. It features remarkable archive footage of the fight for the Falkland Islands, atmospheric battle reconstructions and 3D animated graphics that provide a unique perspective on famous battles such as Goose Green, Tumbledown Mountain and Wireless Ridge. 'The Falklands War' also features the memories and recollections of British and Argentine servicemen who went to war in the South Atlantic twenty five years ago. Featuring expert analysis and contributions from: Alex Manning, Military historian, HMS Sultan - Major General Julian Thompson, Brigadier, 3 Commando, 1982 - Reverend David Cooper, Padre, 2 Para, 1982 - David Collett, 'A' Company Commander, 3 Para, 1982 - Tim Spicer, Operations Officer, Scots Guards, 1982 - Barry Griffiths, Platoon Commander, 3 Para, 1982 - Captain Stuart Russell, Corporal, 2 Para, 1982 - Richard Lane, Operations Officer, HMS Coventry, 1982.

This is just a re-packaged couple of DVDs that have been around for a few years. What an insult to those who fought in the Falklands! Here are the originals:

Could have been longer with a bit more on the voyage down and more input from the Argentine side. Having said that its easy to forget how old this Doc is even though it was made some twenty or so years after the conflict and how almost as far removed from those events we are now as 1992 was from the end of WW2. I'm sure John and Dan Snow will get around to making a great and styalised take on this but this is fairly good.

I couldn't watch after the first 15 mins. The detail which is missing, and the lack of attention to detail, is incredible. In the Darwin and Green Goose portion the non actual footage is pathetic. This is an insult to all who went Down South. It is appalling. Also, "3 commando Brigade" as in the DVD should be "3 Commando Brigade", an example of the quality of this video. A schoolboy could have done a better job !

the promotion does not give enough detail. it contains 2 discs , one of which is Goose Green 1982 which i have already got. when you advertise these products, there needs to be more detail so that i do not buy something that i already have. i am doing some research on the Falklanda war and do not want to spend money unnecessarily by duplicating products.

For the delivered price, it was a good value DVD, with two discs enclosed. One features your standard 50-odd minute military documentary on the conflict in general, plus the second, which focuses solely on Goose Green. For anyone interested in the Falklands War of 1982, it is a very good introduction. For those more well read on the subject, it is pretty general, standard stuff, with little one hasn't seen before.
The veteran interviews are excellent, as I find they always are in any military documentary, but a few more participants would of been better. So too, perhaps some islanders or relatives, etc. featuring, may of also been an improvement.
All in all, not poor in any sense, not great either, but recommended viewing for anyone interested.
