This large format, highly illustrated book tells the story of the extraordinarily swift British response to the invasion of the Falkland islands by the armed forces of Argentina in 1982.
It is now 20 years since those events unfolded, since the “task force” set sail with only five days notice. The book describes how this mammoth effort of 110 ships and 28,000 men was put together, with sufficient logistical backing, and shows how the victory was accomplished within the limited resources available.
It also tells how a skilled force of highly trained professional soldiers, sailors and airmen were able to dislodge the Argentinians leading to one of the most outstanding military feats of the late twentieth century.
Illustrated with over 70 color photographs as well as numerous black and white photographs, illustrations, charts and maps.
