Of course, fighting a war is always difficult--but when you're conducting an amphibious campaign over 8,000 miles from home, the task becomes Herculean. Such were the circumstances in the Falklands in 1982 where, in the unforgiving climate of the South Atlantic, the outnumbered British struggled to defeat Argentina's troops. Written by the commander of England's land forces there, this first major account of the war reveals the frustrations, hardships, and ultimately the success of a campaign regarded by many as a mission impossible.
