The Hundred Days that saw the British response to General Galtiere of Argentina's invasion of the Falklands are for many British people the most remarkable of their lives.
It describes the dark days of early April, the feverish response and forming of the Task Force, the anxieties and uncertainties, the naval and air battles that preceded the landings by 3 Commando Brigade and 5th Infantry Brigade. The extraordinary battles such as Goose Green, Mount Tumbledown, Wireless Ridge etc are narrated fully but succinctly.
This is a very balanced overview of a never-to-be-repeated but triumphant chapter in British military history.
