REVIEW ô PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ô Martin Middlebrook CHARACTERS Operation Corporate The Falklands War 1982 ô PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Martin Middlebrook Ô 6 CHARACTERS Omes to some controversial conclusions about the conflict His book which contains material on the Exocet attacks on British ships on the loss of HMS Coventry and the Sir Galahad tragedy and on the controversial. I m giving it three stars because over the course of the book I decided that I should have probably just read the wikipedia page on the Falklands War However the book was excellently written and contained as much detail as you could wish for The one thing I wish this book would have had is an epilogue that talks about the outcomes of the war I know his entire book is objective and a review of the war would be subjective but I would like to know if the Falkland War is considered a success since Britain won or a failure since they loss hundreds of millions of pounds in ships and planesFor me I found the 1 sovereignty history of the Falklands and 2 the mechanicallogistic problems of euipment to be most interesting The fact that Exocet attacks were so successful because a ship was turned the wrong way so the Sea Dart system cannot be engaged Or how difficult war was without satellite images GPS or ineffectual radio communication Two ships would pick up an Argentinian raid but the ships hit would not get notified Or a helicopter couldn t fire its weapons because it was too early in the morning the the weapon wasn t able to aim in such conditionsThe author also commented a few times on the lack of discipline by the Argentinian soldiers eg their latrines were directly next to their trenches and positions Samsara Na drogach których nie ma up an Argentinian raid but the ships hit would not get notified Or a helicopter couldn t fire its weapons because it was too early in the morning the the weapon wasn t able to aim in such conditionsThe author also commented a few times on the lack of discipline by the Argentinian soldiers eg their latrines were directly next to their trenches and positions

REVIEW ô PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ô Martin Middlebrook CHARACTERS Operation Corporate The Falklands War 1982 ô PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Martin Middlebrook Ô 6 CHARACTERS The Falklands War began when Argentinian troops invaded the Falkland Islands on 2 April 1982 Martin Middlebrook has sought out all the available evidence from documentary and personal sources on both sides and c. The Falklands war from the British perspectiveThis is a pretty even handed account of the Falklands war considering that it is written by a British author with the stated purpose of covering British operationsAt one point in explaining the Argentine defeat Mr Middlebrook wrote something that is likely uite controversial in our politically correct world But these soldiers were mainly of Spanish Italian or native South American Indian blood not temperamentally suited to prolonged military operations involving hard living and facing modern firepower They were also members of an army which had no experience of modern war and were not trained to the high standard of Nato armies I would not have written that but there is a vast cultural difference between Argentina and Great Britain One which does not favor Argentina in a military confrontation When the crisis began I tried to delicately explain this to a military officer with whom I worked He was convinced that Argentina s numbers air force and proximity to the theater of operations would lead to a decisive defeat of Great Britain He just couldn t seem to grasp the fact that over here we had Argentina a country with a history of governmental instability and a military whose history is primarily political and as it turned out was not well trained or euipped On the other hand there was Great Britain with a tradition of military success and naval dominance She possessed a well trained highly motivated military with good euipment though not all that she should have had Better boots would have been very nice A full sized aircraft carrier capable of handling conventional aircraft and and better euipped anti aircraft ships would have made an enormous difference It also seems that armour on the frigates and destroyers would have been helpful I wonder what difference the HMS Vanguard could have made She was the last British battleship which was deleted in 1960 Even without armour and all of the euipment they might have had so long as the British government and people maintained the will to fight Argentina could not win Here is a uote from Captain David Pentreath RN commander of the frigate HMS Plymouth It was perfect weather The ships were widely dispersed I flew in my helicopter to Fearless for the final briefing and it was very impressive It wasn t the biggest force I d seen but considering that it was the other side of the world and that they had been assembled in such a hurry it was very impressive and a truly memorable achievement I was thrilled to see such a gathering and it was obviously a very positive sign of our intent It was one of my abiding impressions of the war that despite all the political and diplomatic manoeuvrings going on there was never any uestion of the ultimate aim not being achieved There was no uestion of being deflected from that aimAs Mr Middlebrook and many others have pointed out the most glaring error made by the Argentines was to underestimate British will I have to wonder if Latin machismo contributed to their underestimating British Prime Minister Margaret ThatcherMr Middlebrook later wrote a very good military history of the war from the Argentine point of view I have read and reviewed that book THE FIGHT FOR THE MALVINAS aka ARGENTINE FIGHT FOR THE FALKLANDS His two books taken together present a very readable well informed history of the military operations in the war The Undefeated uote from Captain David Pentreath RN commander of the frigate HMS Plymouth It was perfect weather The ships were widely dispersed I flew in my helicopter to Fearless for the final briefing and it was very impressive It wasn t the biggest force I d seen but considering that it was the other side of the world and that they had been assembled in such a hurry it was very impressive and a truly memorable achievement I was thrilled to see such a gathering and it was obviously a very positive sign of our intent It was one of my abiding impressions of the war that despite all the political and diplomatic manoeuvrings going on there was never any Po Wieku Teatru Wybrzeze uestion of the Hearing Before the Committee on the Judiciary of the House of Representatives uestion of being deflected from that aimAs Mr Middlebrook and many others have pointed out the most glaring error made by the Argentines was to Shadowspell Academy The Culling Trials underestimate British will I have to wonder if Latin machismo contributed to their Alligators, Monsters & Cool School Poems underestimating British Prime Minister Margaret ThatcherMr Middlebrook later wrote a very good military history of the war from the Argentine point of view I have read and reviewed that book THE FIGHT FOR THE MALVINAS aka ARGENTINE FIGHT FOR THE FALKLANDS His two books taken together present a very readable well informed history of the military operations in the war
