Item Description: Chippenham, 1st.ed., 1986. X + 262 pp., profusely illustrated with photographs + 11 maps & charts, 15 cold. photographs, & pict e.p.’s. D.j., 30 x 22cm. FINE. The story of the fight to retake a cold and isolated island deep in the South Atlantic during the Falklands War of 1982. Containing a wealth of photographs and other illustrations, it is the story of the naval and military operations on South Georgia, an island that has been British since it was discovered by Captain Cook in 1775. Since 1943 the island has become the focus of dispute between Argentina and Great Britain, the former unwisely deciding to settle the argument by invasion. Operation ‘Paraquat’ was the code name for British plans to retake South Georgia by force ; the first step in recovering the Falklands themselves. The Army’s crack SAS and the Navy’s elite SBS forces went in first, followed by an attack by the Fleet Air Arm and the destruction of the Argentine submarine SANTA FE. The island was eventually back in British hands and Argentina signed their surrender in the wardroom of the frigate HMS PLYMOUTH. This book is the result of three years of painstaking research.
