I really don't understand the disparaging review from one reader. There are, of course, many first hand accounts on the subject. I found this one well worth reading particularly as bargain priced copies are readily available.

Graham Colbeck's book is an important contribution to the history of the Falkland's conflict. Colbeck kept a written diary and took a significant number of photographs many of which are seen in this book.
Included here are first hand accounts of the battle for Mount Longden where B company 3 Para incurred significant losses in a batle against significant odds.
Graham Colbeck has a keen eye for detail and the book conveys some of the black humour and understatement that typifies the British soldier.
An outstanding read and contribution to historical records.

Someone gave me a paperback version of this book some years ago, and unlike other books by authors "who were there", I found it a difficult read, and often boring. Typically, like the authors of other such books, Colbeck has turned to a former senior officer to provide a forward, with the obvious intention of giving weight and authenticity to the title. I'm surprised the book was thought worthy of a reprint.
There are many books covering the Falklands conflict, both general and at ground level. This is one to avoid at all costs.
