"Skills, courage, technology, STOVL vs conventional & more in the air war over the Falklands"
hhpodesta
This book shows how the key to British success was the speed with which the British gained and then maintained air superiority over the islands and the waters around them with their small force of Sea Harrier STOVL warplanes, which operated from two aircraft carriers. Though subsonic, the Sea Harrier and Sidewinder AAM were a combination altogether superior to Argentina's mix of supersonic and subsonic warplanes with older weapons. This advantage was emphasised by the significantly greater tactical acuity of the British Pilots. The Argentine pilots fought with considerable piloting skill and enormous courage, and scored a number of stunning successes against British warships, but ultimately they could not prevent the British landing and the following land campaign that resulted in complete Argentine defeat. Very interesting book.

"Comprehensive yet Condensed Coverage of Jet/Missile Naval Warfare In Our Time"
petepags
I am fascinated by all things pertaining to the Falklands War. As a retired Navy officer, I enjoy studying this war as it was the only modern naval war fought so far. This book does not disappoint! Richly illustrated with action photos and drawings, this is an essential reference tool for the modeler and the histroy buff. The text is well written and very informative as well. Three thumbs up!
