by Paul Eddy and Magnus Linklater

This is the full story of the campaign for the Falklands in 1982, written by the Sunday Times Insight Team.

THE OFFICIAL HISTORY OF THE FALKLANDS CAMPAIGN: VOL. I
by Sir Lawrence Freedman

The origins of the April, 1982 war. The book describes the long dispute between Argentina and Britain over the sovereignty of the Islands, the difficulties faced by successive governments in finding a way to reconcile the opposed interests of the Argentines and the islanders, and the constant struggle to keep the Islands viable. In March 1982 what started as an apparently trivial incident over an illegal landing by scrap-metal merchants on the island of South Georgia turned into a major crisis. Drawing on official papers the author charts the growing realisation within the British government of the seriousness of the situation, culminating in the Argentine invasion.

THE OFFICIAL HISTORY OF THE FALKLANDS CAMPAIGN: VOL. II
by Sir Lawrence Freedman

In the second volume, War and Diplomacy, the author provides a detailed and authoritative account of one of the most extraordinary periods in recent British political history and a vivid portrayal of a government at war. After the shock of the Argentine invasion of the Falklands in April 1982, Margaret Thatcher faced the crisis that came to define her premiership as she determined to recover the islands. The book covers all aspects of the campaign – economic and diplomatic as well as military and describes in dramatic detail events such as the sinking of the Belgrano, the battle of Goose Green and the final push to Stanley.

FOUR WEEKS IN MAY: THE LOSS OF HMS COVENTRY
by David Hart Dyke

On 25th May, 1982 the destroyer HMS Coventry, commanded by the author, was attacked by Argentine A-4 Skyhawk aircraft whilst on anti-aircraft picket duty in Falkland Sound. She was hit by 3 bombs killing 19 of her crew and leaving many more badly injured. Capsizing within minutes, she would finally sink the following day off pebble Island. This book was adapted by the BBC into a documentary 'Sea of Fire', which was shown in June 2007.

THE BATTLE FOR THE FALKLANDS
by Max Hastings and Simon Jenkins

Max Hastings accompanied the Task Force and was present at many of the major actions at sea and on land during the 1982 Falklands campaign.
