Not the best way to learn about the conflict.
on 2 June 2014
One Hundred Days is a well-written and sometimes too honest account of the Falkalnds conflict.
I wouldn't recommend it as the first book you read on the subject, however, as a lot of the events described in this book are viewed very differently in other accounts, and this is a very Navy-centric narrative. The author (who commanded the Naval Battle Group) is almost overbearing in his humility, possibly a consequence of the criticism he received at the time.
An interesting perspective, however I think I shall have to read other accounts to try and get the clearest picture of that period of history.
