Review quote

"A small gem of military and naval history reminiscent in many ways of Barbara Tuchman's The Guns of August. The authors have two stories to tell. The first is a brilliant narration of a short, violent clash in the freezing fogs and mountainous seas of the South Atlantic. The other is an informed analysis of the political decision-making that led to the conflict, raising those larger questions of war and peace which modern man approaches on bended knee." -- Washington Post Book World "Will probably endure as the standard history of the campaign." -- New York Times "Authoritative and very readable." -- Newsweek "Stirring, impressively detailed." -- Time
