Mathew John Anthony Wilson, OBE, MC.
Why the one-star general, who was honoured for his Northern
Ireland tours with the OBE and the MC in the 1970s, was denied any awards for his time as commander of the 5th Infantry Brigade in the Falklands War, will be clarified in this book.
The Canadian Army Journal - Edition Spring 2015:
"The lonesome Commander offers an interesting perspective on Brigadier Anthony Wilson, and it would make a suitable addition to the library of any dedicated student of this conflict."
