Van der Bijl goes into much more detail on the battles than, say, Hastings - going down, generally, to company level on each side - but not right down to platoon level and below like Adkin.
Unfortunately, the book is slightly chronologically confused (in layout, not fact), which makes it hard to read - and I found it neccesary to keep Hastings handy for cross reference. In addition, some of the maps do not completely agree with the text.
In summary, well worth an addition to a Falklands bookshelf one already has, but is not the book to start it. Hopefully Adkin is working on the other eight battles!
