This is an excellent book - riveting! Very well written and researched with the "same" events as told by different participants (including Argentinian), which gave a very balanced overall perspective. The only token gripes - I would have liked to have seen a bit more of the Argentinian perspective especially from mid-book onwards (but there is comparatively little literature from them on this anyway). A bit too much prominence was given to the Kelpers efforts to aid the military effort (in my humble opinion). I would have liked some input on the Atlantic Conveyor - it's loss was a massive blow at the time to the British war effort, which they managed to overcome. As I said these are very token points on one of the best books that I've read on the Falklands War (and I must be up to 30 books by now!)

It was a lot tougher than we were made to believe in the papers at the time

Very interesting. A lot of info i never knew. Especially the inter rivalries and poor RN leadership.

So few people me included ever knew what if took for these guys to win this war. Company D especially did most of the fighting. Instead of getting a medal for his bravery and tenacity, not to mention the immense training involved that was needed. More than thirty years on he still suffers severe PTS. Survives on a very mediocre pension. Many soldiers have since took their own lives due to the horrendous Trauma. What thanks did these guys ever get.
