The Battle for The Falklands by Max Hastings & Simon Jenkins | Militaria | WARSTUFF
Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing

The Falkland Islands episode was characterised by an extraordinary blend of drama and tragi-comedy. It began with an incident so bizarre that few could take it seriously; the arrival of scrap merchants on one of the earth's most godforsaken spots.

Two months later, a thousand men had died and the Islands had seen the biggest air/sea battle since World War II and an equally remarkable amphibious operation and land campaign. This is the story from from the sailing of the naval task force to the recapture of the island's capital Port Stanley, in parallel with events in London and Washington.

The book is a blow by blow account of the operations, is heavily illustrated with maps, diagrams and photographs; it measures some 6.5" x 9.5" (165 x 240mm), runs to 372 pages, is in very good condition including the dust jacket with just some slight age marking to the page edges.
