TEXT ☆ The Real Story of the Falklands War in the Words of Those Who Were There Ò Hugh McManners

In March 1982 Argentina surprised the world by invading the Falkland Islands in the Atlantic Ocean The tiny islands had long been the subject of a fierce territorial dispute between Argentina and the UK and the occupation uickly escalated into a terrifying full blown conflict between the two countriesOften referred to as a forgotten war the Falklands conflict was in actual fact the first war of the modern age using satellite surveillance night observation devices and all the very latest weaponry military technology had to offer It was also the first real media war the public's perception of this far off conflict mediated by what they saw on their television screens and read in their newspapers Objective analysis on both sides took a back seat to the politics of expediency and crude appeals to nationalismDrawing upon the vast resources of the Imperial War Museum's Sound Archive and containing previously unpublished material Forgotten Voices of the Falklands War presents the first complete oral history of the Falklands War From the initial invasion of the islands to the British landings to the Argentinean surrender and its aftermath the book is a uniue and essential chronicle of the conflict from all sides and perspectives told in the participants' own voicesHugh McManners who himself fought in the Falklands War has created the definitive oral history book on the subject This is an excellent book riveting Very well written and researched with the same events as told by different participants including Argentinian which gave a very balanced overall perspective The only token gripes I would have liked to have seen a bit of the Argentinian perspective especially from mid book onwards but there is comparatively little literature from them on this anyway A bit too much prominence was given to the Kelpers efforts to aid the military effort in my humble opinion I would have liked some input on the Atlantic Conveyor it's loss was a massive blow at the time to the British war effort which they managed to overcome As I said these are very token points on one of the best books that I've read on the Falklands War and I must be up to 30 books by now
