New book, 308 pages. The sinking of the Belgrano was one of the most dramatic moments of the Falkland conflict. Signalling for many, Britain's entry into the war, it has been seen as a politically motivated decision deliberately designed to take the country irrevocably into the fight. Now Mike Rossiter - with unprecedented access to sailors from the Belgrano and HMS Conqueror - gives us a vivid and definitive retelling of the events that led up to the sinking. We track the collision course of the British submarine Conqueror and the Argentine warship - as the two sides and everyone on board head towards the climactic moment just outside the exclusion zone set up by the British around the Falkland Islands.
