The Battle for the Falklands Summary

The Battle for the Falklands by Sir Max Hastings

The Falklands War was one of the strangest in British history - 20,000 men sent to fight for a series of tiny islands 8,000 miles from home. Fifteen years later this book has become a modern classic of war reportage, and remains the definitive account of a conflict which captured the nation's imagination.

Max Hastings' reporting from the South Atlantic won him the award of Journalist of the Year whilst Simon Jenkins, then Political Editor of the Economist, offers a cogent analysis of the war on the political and diplomatic funds.
