Product Description:
With the sudden Argentine invasion of the remote Falkland Islands on 2 April 1982 the United Kingdom found itself at war. Due to the resolve of a determined Prime Minister and the resourcefulness of the Armed Forces, a Task Force, code named Operation CORPORATE, was quickly dispatched.

Remarkably just over two months later, the Islands were liberated and the invaders defeated. By any standards this was a remarkable feat of all arms cooperation made possible by political resolve, sound planning, strong leadership and the courage and determination of the combatants.

Martin Middlebrook, one of the most skillful historians of the 20th Century, has weaved the many strands of this extraordinary military achievement into a fascinating, thorough and highly readable account of the Campaign.

For a full understanding of what it took to win this war there will be no better account to read than this.

Battle for the Falklands: The Winter War

By Patrick Bishop

Released: 2012-03-15
Kindle Edition

Battle for the Falklands: The Winter War
Product Description:

‘Boldly planned, bravely executed and brilliantly accomplished’ was Margaret Thatcher’s assessment of the Falklands campaign. But what did the war mean to the men in the trenches and below decks?

This gripping first-hand account of the Falklands War, written by bestselling military historian Patrick Bishop and Sunday Times Editor John Witherow, reveals the true experiences of the British soldiers and seamen on the front line. The authors, then rookie reporters, lived alongside the fighting men, experiencing the daily realities of a British task force that was hugely outnumbered on a barren island 8,000 miles from home. The Falklands: The Winter War looks at the covert role of the SAS and the heroic death of Colonel ‘H’ Jones at Goose Green, and considers just how close Britain came to defeat.

This is an extraordinarily frank and unsparing account of a military campaign that has held a defining place within the British national conscience since victory in 1982.

Product Description:
While many books have been written on the Falklands War, this is the first to focus on the vital aspect of logistics. The challenges were huge; the lack of preparation time; the urgency; the huge distances involved; the need to requisition ships from trade to name but four.

After a brief discussion of events leading to Argentina’s invasion the book describes in detail the rush to reorganize and deploy forces, dispatch a large task force, the innovative solutions needed to sustain the Task Force, the vital staging base at Ascension Island, the in-theater resupply, the setbacks and finally the restoring of order after victory.

Had the logistics plan failed, victory would have been impossible and humiliation inevitable, with no food for the troops, no ammunition for the guns, no medical support for casualties etc.

The lessons learnt have never been more important with increasing numbers of out-of-area operations required in remote trouble spots at short notice. The Falklands experience is crucial for the education of new generations of military planners and fascinating for military buffs and this book fills an important gap.

Product Description:
The Argentine invasion of the Falklands in 1982 sparked national outrage and Britain felt she had to avenge the humiliation and protect her own. This volume explores both the military and political dimensions of this important conflict, including detailed accounts of the air / sea battle, the Battle for San Carlos Water, Goose Green, Mt Harriet, Tumbledown and many others. It explains how success in the Falklands set the stage for the years of Thatcher's dominance, and restored British prestige. Including first hand accounts from both soldiers and civilians, this is an interesting and thoroughly up to date appraisal.

  • Reference Book
Product Description:
The Falklands War (1982), fought between the United Kingdom and Argentina for the possession of the Falkland Islands, was probably the last 'colonial' war that will ever be undertaken by the British. This book shows how the key to British success was the speed with which the British gained and then maintained air superiority over the islands and the waters around them with their small force of Sea Harrier STOVL warplanes, which operated from two aircraft carriers. Though subsonic, the Sea Harrier and its Sidewinder AAM were a combination altogether superior to Argentina's mix of supersonic and subsonic warplanes with older weapons, and this advantage was emphasised by the significantly greater tactical acuity of the British pilots. The Argentine pilots fought with considerable piloting skill and enormous courage, and scored a number of stunning successes against British warships, but ultimately they could not prevent the British landing and the following land campaign that resulted in complete Argentine defeat.

A Close Run Thing: The Navy and the Falklands War

By Richard Freeman

Endeavour Press Ltd.
Released: 2012-03-07
Kindle Edition (43 pages)

A Close Run Thing: The Navy and the Falklands War
Product Description:
Thirty years ago, in 1982, Argentina invaded the Falkland Islands, triggering the last great naval battle of the 20th-century. The British Task Force sent to re-claim the islands, was the largest amphibious landing since D-day in the Second World War.

In this ground-breaking essay, the acclaimed naval historian Richard Freeman tells the story of Royal Navy in that momentous campaign. The ships had to transport the men, their machines and equipment, but also to supply them at a distance of nearly 8000 miles from their home ports. This the Navy did while under constant attack from missile-laden Argentine aircraft. The cost was high, with around 1,000 killed and wounded sailors and the loss of seven ships, twenty-four helicopters and ten fighter planes.

This dramatic, enthralling book tells the story of the naval war, and the men and ships who fought it. And it explores the defence issues which it raised then and raises today. At the time the whole operation was hazardous in view of the depleted state of the Fleet. Today it would be impossible.

Published to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the war Freeman examines how the battles for the Falklands fits into Britain naval history, and what lessons it still has for today.

Richard Freeman graduated in mathematics before following a career in distance education. He now writes on naval history. His other books include 'The Great Edwardian Naval Feud'.

Three days in June (Falklands war)

James O'Connell
Released: 2014-06-30
Kindle Edition (380 pages)

Three days in June (Falklands war)
Product Description:
( Paperback is now available from phelmets@aol.co.uk )
This book is an account of the 3rd Battalion The Parachute Regiment during the last three days of the Falklands war, it has been put together with the goodwill of the members of 3 Para and their attachments. When I asked Lieutenant-General Sir Hew Pike KCB, DSO, MBE if he would do a read through, to make sure he had no objections to the content and if he would be kind enough to write the foreword, this was his reply, it sums up what the book is all about.

Jimmy, I have spent last night having a good read of the book, before I go away today, and really must congratulate you. Particularly strong is the overall picture of the awful nature of the fighting, the teamwork, the comradeship, and the courage in supporting others, the humour- I could go on. Also very strong are the descriptions of casevac and the backup side of the battle.
I wouldn't dream of suggesting that you change a single word.
It is a marvellous tribute to the courage and tenacity of the men of 3 PARA and you should be very proud of what you have achieved for them all.
Of course I will do a Foreword for your book, it would be a privilege

All good wishes
Hew Pike

Whether sharing intelligence on the Argentine military, seeking suitable airbases for British planes, or creating the perfect cover story to the world's media on why a British helicopter crew were found near the Chilean/Argentine border, Sidney was quietly but crucially affecting the outcome of the war.

Based on reports to his superiors back in London - now available for the first time under the 30 year rule - Edwards' clear and compelling account reveals the frenetic and sensitive diplomatic activity that was going on behind the scenes during this short, intense war.

As well as the mission described in this book, Edwards completed tours as a jet instructor, served as Air AttachE at the British Embassy in Madrid, and commanded advanced jet flying at the RAF Central Flying School, which included the Red Arrows. He lives in Letchworth, Hertfordshire.
