    One thought on “The Falklands War, 1982

    1. Tony

      I was a school boy when my Uncle went off to fight in the Falklands War or Falklands conflict as it was called at the time , and I thought it was about time I tried to understand what he went through Martin Middlebrook s book turned out to be an excellent place to start Middlebrook sets out to write a military history of the Falklands War, and that s exactly what he does very little time is spent on the rights wrongs or the politics of Britain going to war over a tiny colony in the south Atlanti [...]

      Originally an authoritative account of the war now updated in 2012 Frankly the update seems somewhat lacklustre and leaves numerous questions such as the role of special forces, the logistics challenges, the role of US support to the british forces and the longer term implications and learnings somewhat unsatisfactorily answered considering that 30 years should have provided insight.But still the Middlebrook touch is undeniable and if you only want to read one book on the conflict, you are well [...]

      The Falklands War is a very readable account of the military side of the war in the Falklands Middlebrook gives the bare bones of the history of the Falklands, diplomacy, and the political side of the war to set the scene for his narrative of the military buildup and military operations The Argentinians didn t cooperate with the author, so there isn t as much in the book from their perspective but Middlebrook tries to be as objective as possible He also includes accounts from the Falklanders the [...]

      This was written soon after the conflict itself, and contains many great sections of interviews with soldiers who fought on the remote and unlikely battlefield Though perhaps the high point was quoting someone talking about the state of aircraft in flight refueling by saying it was like shoving wet spaghetti up a wildcat s bum.

      Excellent book written in the near aftermath of the war and with an update a few years later This was triggered by The Forgotten Little War Argentine viewpoint and Doctor to Friend and Foe medical viewpoint Interesting to see these three juxtaposed As this year sees the 35th anniversary of the Falklands War, now might be a time to read a up to date chronicle One interesting point that I can t seem to find further details about is Dr Mary Elphinstone, a newly qualified slip of a girl awarded an [...]

    6. Piotr Grzeskiewicz

      Interesting take on a forgotten conflict Certain Britain s last colonial war, and Middlebrook details this in a comprehensive yet delicate manner I enjoy militaria, so this makes for a welcome addition to my library.

    7. Dave Monds

      Exceptional and thorough history of British forcesAs a newcomer to this conflict I feel very much informed Each key event, decision and action is well described The accounts from those who were there add colour and life to the narrative Highly recommend this book.

    8. Julian Cribb

      Among the host of books about the Falklands conflict, this stands out as possibly the best, alongside Julian Thompson s No Picnic which was narrowly focussed on the ground campaign Written some years after the conflict Middlebrook has the advantage of perspective and a little from the Argentinian viewpoint, giving a grounded and satisfying history, but recounted with all his usual flair, precision and vigour Despite the British hype, the Falklands was another very near run thing in many ways, [...]

      Great, fascinating account of the war Particularly useful for research purposes, as it is the only real example of recent modernized militaries contesting each other without overwhelming odds favoring one side over the other.
