Argentine Forces in the Falklands by Nicholas Van der Biji

Book Description

Contrary to some opinions expressed at the time, Argentine troops deployed to the Falklands, and which engaged the British troops sent to recapture the islands, were not largely 16-year-old conscripts but experienced, well-trained troops. Certain "elite" units were also deployed to the islands by the Argentinians including 601 and 602 Marine Commando Companies and 5th Marine Infantry Battalion. Although plagued by bad relations between officers and men, the Argentine force fought determindley during many of the engagements of the Falklands War and battles such as Goose Green and the assault on Mount Tumbledown were bloody, hard-fought affairs. This book looks at the arms, equipment and organization of the Argentine troops who captured and attempted, unsuccessfully, to hold the Falkland Islands.
