Excellent RAF officer's view of a war dominated by the Sea Harriers of the Royal Navy - but in what was very much a shoestring war, the RAF made an outstanding and important contribution. An honest account not burdened by or limited by fighting as what was in some ways the junior service role in theatre. Great addition to any reading list presenting a complete view of the conflict.

This is my favorite book on the Falklands War of 1982. It is also my favorite book on military aviation and one of my favorite works of military history. The research, consisting mostly of interviews with aviators on both sides, is impeccable. The writing is both clear and accessible.

Just finished this book again. Well worth a read by anyone interested in aircraft or modern combat.

Well documented considering it came out a year after the war.

Born the son of a fighter pilot on March Air Force Base in Riverside, California, Ethell was prevented from joining the Air Force because he lacked 20/20 vision. He went on, however, to log more than 5000 hours of flight ...more
