Air War in the Falklands 1982 by Chris Chant

Book Description

Argentina's continuing claim to sovereignty of the Falkland Islands, against Britain, was still in the hands of the United Nations when in 1982, Argentine troops seized the islands in a lightning raid. This title gives first hand accounts from combat veteran pilots of the battles that transpired, and tells the tale of commanders who relive their death-defying wartime missions. It details a conflit whose global repercussions and after effects can still be felt in the world, focusing on the long-range logistics of the conflict for the RAF, the difficult conditions in the South Atlantic, and the successes and failures of British tactics.
