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.

Excellent.

A sad reminder of Britains solo war against the Argentinians.
