Description - The Secret War For The Falklands by Nigel West
First published on the 15th anniversary of the Falklands War of 1982, this work provides a secret history of the conflict, the first time the Royal Navy had been engaged by an enemy since 1945. In terms of hardware, it was a test of the world's latest air and defence sytems and a unique opportunity to push competing fighters to their limits in an environment that stretched men and aircraft alike. This book focuses on "Operation Corporate", the task force assigned to retake the Falklands, and on the clandestine efforts to deny General Galtieri the one weapon that could have turned Corporate into a humiliating defeat for Britain - the French-manufactured Exocet missile.
