The Argentinian invasion of the Falkland Islands came as a thunderclap in early April 1982; it was one of those events,like the assassination of President Kennedy or the death of the Princess of Wales,when many people can remember what they were doing when the news broke.What sets Nicholas van der Bijl's account of the Falklands War apart from previous works - and there have inevitably been many - is its objectivity. All too often readers only receive the British viewpoint of the conflict.Van der Bijl,who served 'down south' with the Intelligence Corps,is ideally equipped to examine in detail Argentinian strengths and weaknesses and to use first hand accounts to paint the true picture.This thoroughly balanced work benefits not just the author's own experience but the wealth of research information he has gathered since the conflict.Without any axe to grind the author has produced a thoroughly readable and authoritative description of the major battles that led to the famous British victory.He pulls no punches and preserves no sacred cows as witnessed by the graphic description and assessment of the SAS attack on South Georgia.Even those who took part in the campaign will learn something new about those anxious months when the British and Argentinian nations held their breath as extraordinary events unfolded. For a really clear and balanced account of what actually happened the expert and the layman alike can do better than to read Nine Battles to Stanley. Since April 2013,again in March 2015,and in this year too,the UK Post Office has altered it's Pricing in Proportion template,altering it's prices, weight allowances,dimensions and lowered it's qualifying compensation rates too! So,please contact rpaxtonden@blueyonder.co.uk ,because of the weight/ value of this item for correct,insured shipping/P+p quotes - particularly ALL overseas buyers - BEFORE ordering through the order page!
