The Falklands 1982 – Book Review

The Falklands war of 1982 was a short sharp series of battles on sites ranging from the open, boggy ground of Goose Green to the windswept rocks around Port Stanley. 

It was a brief war but a bloody one. It was fought in appalling conditions and involved night fighting with rifles, bayonets, machine guns and grenades.

The war was no textbook affair – commanders on both sides learned new tactics and techniques.  This book is an excellent analysis and introduction to the war which will be much appreciated by military historians. It is really well illustrated with maps, diagrams and photos.

These are clearly used to support the text and throw extra light upon the campaigns. A good solid, detailed outline of the Falklands Waron land.
