Hugh McManners book was one of the first eye-witness accounts of combat operations during the Falkland War, and indeed one of the first books on Special Forces missions. Hugh was one of the first soldiers to land on the Falkland Islands and this book describes his team's covert missions to direct the artillery bombardment of Argentine positions, which he himself controlled. With an observent eye and in the language of the ordinary soldier, the author describes the deployment, preparation and course of the battle from the forefront of the land fighting. Some 20 years after the conflict, Hugh has revised the book and added a refreshed introduction, new photos, and additional notes on the battles.
