This e-book is an extract from "The Downing Street Years", first published by HarperCollins in 1993. If, like me, you're interested in the Falklands War, but not in the rest of Thatcher's time in power, it's useful to be able to buy this cut-down version of her memoirs.

Margaret Thatcher obviously has a unique perspective on the Falklands War, and that makes this an interesting book. I do feel, though, that she has omitted certain things and played down others in an attempt to put the best possible sheen on her part in events. That may be par for the course in political memoirs, of course.

Two examples:, she states that "We were never tempted to compromise the security of our forces for financial reasons. Everything we did was governed by military necessity." - even though the aircraft carriers that were so crucial to the retaking of the islands were due to be sold off or scrapped, and "I was determined that the needs of our servicemen should have priority over politics", even though the retaking of South Georgia was done at the behest of the politicians, against the advice of the military commanders.

On the other hand, though, there are some interesting insights into the politics and diplomacy. Apparently when Alexander Haig was told of the intended operation to invade South Georgia, he said that he'd have to inform the Argentinians, although he was persuaded against doing so.

Overall, it's a useful read for anyone who wants a deeper insight into the Falklands War, but it should be read with some degree of scepticism.
