Forgotten Voices of the Falklands: The Real Story of the Falklands War in the Word of Those Who Were There Reviews
I always appreciate maps when reading about tactical maneuvers. This book had one map.
I read this book in a couple of days as it was a very easy read. Comprises of quotes from those who were there, blended in, mainly, chronological order re-telling the story of the Falklands Conflict from pre to post invasion. Quotes from many sources including senior UK military, those that were there, islanders, Argentina military and civil service.Strengths - first hand accounts are enlightening, often laced with heartfelt opinion, giving a feeling of a true account of what went on.Weaknesses - Possibly slightly unbalanced. Those that come in for most criticism (Adm Woodward, Hermes, Welsh Guards, 5 brigade) have no say. Not sure if this is because no-one wanted to comment or no-one was given opportunity to set the record straight.
Excellent.A sad reminder of Britains solo war against the Argentinians.
