This poetry book contains not only vivid records of personal experiences, but ranges into the present political situation, and the ongoing personal tragedies for those who risked their lives to attack or defend the islands. We hear from a fourth generation Falkland Islander who expresses her appreciation and affection for the islands, and gratitude for the courage and sacrifice of those who fought to save the islands. British soldiers and sailors tell of their surreal experiences as they battled to win the war. We learn in frank detail of the traumatic effects of the war on many soldiers. Servicemen's wives tell of the lingering effects of the war on their families. From Argentina, two soldiers tell of their experiences as conscripts snatched from their studies to take part in the war. And a range of writers from across the political spectrum reveal how Argentine society came, in the main, to regret as a foolish and shameful episode, the Argentine invasion of the islands in 1982. It becomes clear that many Argentines feel that any idea of taking over the islands should be forgotten. At the same time we learn how Argentines are taught from their earliest days that the Falkland Islands belong to them and how today many still retain a romantic and emotional attachment to them. The stories told in these poems are fascinating and moving. The opinions offer important insights into contrasting cultures which may hopefully lead to better mutual understanding.

About the Author:

The poets are mainly former British servicemen who took part in the Falklands War 30 years ago and poets from Argentina including two former Argentine conscripts who fought in the war. There are also a few poems by wives of servicemen and Falklands residents. The poems have been selected and are introduced by David Roberts, editor of the war poetry website and three anthologies of poetry of the First World War.
