Overview

3 COMMANDO BRIGADE IN THE FALKLANDS: No Picnic by Julian Thompson

Major General Julian Thompson first wrote No Picnic when the momentous events of April – June 1982 were fresh in his mind. As Commander of 3 Commando Brigade, he was at the heart of the planning and conduct of the War. Under his direct command had been the Royal Marine Commandos and the two battalions of the Parachute Regiment who conducted the lion’s share of the fighting.

No-one therefore is better qualified to tell the extraordinary story of there-taking of the Falkland Islands from the Argentineans. The author, now a celebrated military historian, has revised his earlier book and added, for this 25 Anniversary edition, more of his own personal thoughts and impressions.

It is all too easy to overlook just how perilous and risky a venture this expedition to the depths of the Southern Hemisphere was. Victory and defeat hung in the balance. Even those who feel they know about this most remarkable of wars will learn more from reading this classic account.
