Product description

Admiral Sandy Woodward spent 100 days as commander of the Falklands Battle Group. This book contains his memoirs, his personal reflections during the hours up to the surrender at Port Stanley, of the repulse of the Argentinian navy and defeat of their air forces, of the sinking of the "Belgrano" and of the daring landing at Carlos Water, 8000 miles from home. This book is a portrayal of the world of modern naval warfare, where equipment is of astonishing sophistication but the margins for human courage and error are as wide as in the days of Nelson, and it is unique, too, in its revelations of the mind of the commander involved in planning the Falklands War.
