Description

The Argentines were largely based in Port Stanley and Goose Green on East Falkland and Port Howard and Fox Bay on West Falklands. Solid history of a war that in retrospect was fought on the seam between old and new ways of fighting. The First Casualty – The Untold Story of the Falklands War” was the first book to incorporate all three sides of the Falklands conflict, to include the British and Argentine veterans of the war and the Falkland Islanders themselves in the first ever three-sided, first-person narrative history ever produced. The collection, almost certainly the largest of its kind in the world, spans all the major events of the war. An interesting account of NP 8901 who did so much at the start, and were there to finish the job off at the end.

In the case of the UK that image was maybe prolonged – it was given an afterlife, a kind of zombie-life. Eminently readable (I finished it in two sittings) and compelling, Bramley’s story resonated with a number of former servicemen who fought in the Falklands War and was later complimented by similar books from James O’Connell (3 Para) and Tony Banks (2 Para) in their own personal accounts. It's worth mentioning that this book also has the most detailed account of the Vulcan operations during the Falklands War and the logistics that enabled the use of the Vulcans.It is a skilful illumination of the continued purchase and contradictions of the idea of Greater Britain in the later twentieth century. And then suddenly we lost the war, quite surprisingly since we had been winning it until that very moment. It is a great tribute to the rotary branches in the Royal Navy and the Royal Air Force and John was integral part of developing them into what they are today. The author has an annoying habit of mentioning something, then saying " more about that later" and moving on. Middlebrook not only gives an account of what happened and analysis of how and why things happened, he includes accounts from participants (unfortunately just from the British and the Falklanders, but not because he didn't try to get accounts from the other side).

Consisting of articles from The Telegraph’s archives, it provides a contemporary account of how the newspaper covered the conflict. Alan, one of our blind veterans and trustees, was just 17 when he went to face the Argentines with his fellow Royal Marines. For me, I found the 1) sovereignty history of the Falklands and 2) the mechanical/logistic problems of equipment to be most interesting. I hope this has become not just a standard work for military historians, but will appeal to new readers who have lost faith in war and diplomacy as experienced in the 21st century, and might value an important point of reference.D Company played the decisive role, but, in the closing moments, suffered a deadly artillery barrage – from their own guns. Mercau's book is a must-read for scholars and advanced students interested in the Falklands dispute and the complex history of British decolonization. I love the personal stories of peoples lives and that is why I love pin sword press they have the best non-fiction books Simon Hill is a long time protester himself and I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The Battle for the Falklands is a thoughtful and informed analysis of an astonishing chapter in modern British history from journalist and military historian Sir Max Hastings and political editor Simon Jenkins.
