Product Description:
Major General Julian Thompson first wrote No Picnic when the momentous events of April – June 1982 were fresh in his mind. As Commander of 3 Commando Brigade, he was at the heart of the planning and conduct of the War. Under his direct command had been the Royal Marine Commandos and the two battalions of the Parachute Regiment who conducted the lion’s share of the fighting.

No-one therefore is better qualified to tell the extraordinary story of there-taking of the Falkland Islands from the Argentinians. The author, now a celebrated military historian, has revised his early book and added for this 25 Anniversary edition more of his own personal thoughts and impressions.

It is all too easy to overlook just how perilous and risky a venture this expedition to the depths of the Southern Hemisphere was. Victory and defeat hung in the balance. Even those who feel they know about this most remarkable of wars will learn more from reading this classic account.

Product Description:
Of course, fighting a war is always difficult--but when you're conducting an amphibious campaign over 8,000 miles from home, the task becomes Herculean. Such were the circumstances in the Falklands in 1982 where, in the unforgiving climate of the South Atlantic, the outnumbered British struggled to defeat Argentina's troops. Written by the commander of England's land forces there, this first major account of the war reveals the frustrations, hardships, and ultimately the success of a campaign regarded by many as a mission impossible.

Product Description:
This book tells how in 1982 Britain went to war with Argentina, whose troops had invaded and occupied the Falkland Islands, a British Crown Colony. In a campaign lasting a little over two months, British servicemen reoccupied the islands and, after several hard-fought actions, forced the invaders to surrender. This is Brigadier Julian Thompson's story: he led 3 Commando Brigade who bore the brunt of the fighting. It is a first-hand account of a war that was, by any standards, balanced upon a knife-edge between triumph and disaster. In this revised edition of 3 Commando Brigade's actions in the Falklands - first written while the events were still fresh in the author's mind - the text has been enhanced by important additions to the public's knowledge of the land campaign, as well as insights into the difficulties and frustrations of command.
