Book Description Cornerstone, United Kingdom, 2007. CD-Audio. Book Condition: New. Abridged edition. Language: English . Brand New. In March 1982, Argentina surprised the world by invading the Falkland Islands in the Atlantic Ocean. The tiny islands had long been the subject of a fierce territorial dispute between Argentina and the UK, and the occupation quickly escalated into a terrifying full-blown conflict between the two countries. Often referred to as a forgotten war, the Falklands conflict was, in actual fact, the first war of the modern age, using satellite surveillance, night observation devices, and all the very latest weaponry military technology had to offer. It was also the first real media war - the public s perception of this far-off conflict mediated by what they saw on their television screens and read in their newspapers. Objective analysis on both sides took a back seat to the politics of expediency and crude appeals to nationalism. Drawing upon the vast resources of the Imperial War Museum s Sound Archive, and containing previously unpublished material, Forgotten Voices of the Falklands War presents the first complete oral history of the Falklands War. From the initial invasion of the islands to the British landings to the Argentinean surrender and its aftermath, the book is a unique and essential chronicle of the conflict from all sides and perspectives, told in the participants own voices. Hugh McManners, who himself fought in the Falklands War, has created the definitive oral history book on the subject. Bookseller Inventory # AB99781846570711
