This was the first Hastings book that I read... it was interesting at the time but, since reading other, is certainly not his best.

Because of the contemporary nature of the conflict, and his role as a journalist, this book always struck me as being rather like a series of newspaper articles - and sort of.... unfinished.

I am sure that the recent 25th anniversary of the conflict has meant a reprint or two... and that many copes have been sold - but there are far better narratives of the conflict.

My laytest favourite is Forgotten Voices of the Falklands by Hugh McManners
