9781849086073: The Falklands 1982: Ground operations in the South Atlantic (Campaign)

On the night of 1-2 April 1982, the Argentinian Junta led by Gen. Leopoldo Galtieri made its move against the Falkland Islands. On 3 April British Prime Minister Mrs. Margaret Thatcher faced an appalled and furious House of Commons to announce that Argentine armed forces had landed on British sovereign territory; had captured the men of Royal Marine detachment NP8901; had run up the Argentine flag at Government House; and had declared the islands and their population to be Argentine. An immediate response was required and a task force was rapidly assembled to head into the South Atlantic and retake the islands. From this point until the Argentine surrender on 14 June, the British forces fought what was in many ways a 19th-century style colonial campaign at the end of extended supply lines some 8,000 miles from home. This volume will detail the major stages of the land campaign to retake the islands, focusing on the San Carlos landings, the battle for Darwin and Goose Green, and the final battles for Mt Longdon, Tumbledown and Wireless Ridge, the mountains that surrounded the island's capital, Stanley.

About the Author:

Gregory Fremont-Barnes holds a doctorate in Modern History from Oxford University and serves as a Senior Lecturer in War Studies at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, dividing his work between teaching cadets on site and commissioned officers of the British Army posted to garrisons throughout the UK and abroad. His writing focuses principally on the military and naval history of the 18th and 19th centuries and includes such works as The French Revolutionary Wars, The Boer War, The Peninsular War, The Indian Mutiny, Trafalgar, The Wars of the Barbary Pirates, Nelson's Officers and Midshipmen, and many others. He has edited two major reference works, the three-volume Encyclopedia of the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars and the two-volume Encyclopedia of the Age of Political Revolutions and New Ideologies, 1760-1815, and co-edited the five-volume Encyclopedia of the American Revolutionary War.

Review:

“Latest in a line of annals commemorating the war's 30th Anniversary, The Falklands 1982 expertly outlines ground operations during the brief, bitter South Atlantic conflict. And what an excellent abstract it is.” ―David L. Veres, www.cybermodeler.com
