Forgotten Voices of the Falklands: The Real Story of the Falklands War (Forgotten Voices)

Forgotten Voices of the Falklands: The Real Story of the Falklands War (Forgotten Voices) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Often referred to as a forgotten war, the Falklands conflict was 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. Drawing upon the vast resources of the Imperial War Museum's Sound Archive, and containing previously unpublished material, this work presents the first complete oral history of the Falklands War.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.

GB

Synopsis:

The Falklands War was a turning point in modern British history, yet its significance is often overlooked. Drawing on thousands of interviews with soldiers and civilians, this is the definitive oral history of this conflict.
