Description:
(Subject: Post World War II - Falklands) When Argentinian forces invaded the Falklands in April 1982, the British government responded by despatching a task force to the Atlantic to regain the islands, and the resulting war saw modern weapon systems tested in combat for the first time. In the aftermath, official documents were released, but many were heavily censored, and others withheld altogether. Drawing from recently declassified and previously unpublished reports from the official inquiry, Dr Paul Brown details the true story behind the dramatic events that led to the loss of six British ships: HMS Antelope, Ardent, Coventry and Sheffield, RFA Sir Galahad and SS Atlantic Conveyor, as well as the sinking of the Argentinian cruiser ARA General Belgrano by HMS Conqueror. (Published: 2021) (Publisher: Osprey Publishing) (ISBN: 9781472846433) (Pagination: 320pp, 9 maps, 30 b/w photos) (Condition: new in d/w) UL-XXXXXX

Description:
(Subject: Post World War II - Falklands) The Falkland islanders were the first British people to come under enemy occupation since the Channel Islands during the Second World War. This book tells how their warnings were ignored in London, how their slim defences gave way to a massive invasion, and how they survived occupation. While some established a cautiously pragmatic modus vivendi with the occupiers, some islanders opted for active resistance and others joined advancing British troops, transporting ammunition and leading men to the battlefields.
