Someone gave me a paperback version of this book some years ago, and unlike other books by authors 'who were there', I found it a difficult read, and often boring. However, some of the photos are OK. Typically, like the authors of other such books, Colbeck has turned to a former senior officer to provide a forward, with the obvious intention of giving weight and authenticity to the title. I'm surprised the book was thought worthy of a reprint. There are many books covering the Falklands conflict, both general and at ground level. This is one to avoid at all costs.
