The Falklands War Then and Now e-book

by Gordon Ramsey


In 1982, Argentina rashly gambled that a full-scale invasion of the Falklands Islands - ownership of which had been disputed with Great Britain for over a century - would put an end to years of political wrangling.

Born in 1965 Gordon Ramsey is of a similar age to many of the servicemen who fought in Operation Corporate. Having watched Ian McDonald, the MoD's official spokesman, give his nightly press releases on TV and spoken to several veterans upon their return, Gordon has retained a special interest in this conflict throughout his career in publishing First and Second World War history. Amassing and devouring all the books written by veterans only increased that interest and this book is his answer. Married with two children, he lives and works near Harlow in Essex.

The Falklands War began shortly after the Marines successfully guarded South Georgia. Here, British soldiers disembark at a jetty at San Carlos Bay in June 1982. Along with 12 other Marines under Lieutenant Keith Mills they arrived on the desolate island in mid-March. We then used a bazooka, but three out of five rounds didn't go off. 'If they had we'd have sunk it. But we put it out of action and it was listing at 30 degrees. They later joined the British task force which liberated the Falklands. South Georgia was recaptured on April 25. Thomsen, 51, from Poole in Dorset, is married with two children and now runs a firm making hi-fi record turntables.

Ramsay, then head chef, pointed the finger at his mentor turned nemesis, Marco Pierre White, who, he believed, wanted to depose him and take over the Michelin starred Chelsea restaurant. The person behind the 1998 robbery was never identified. Until now. "It was me," Ramsay has admitted. I nicked it. I blamed Marco. Because I knew that would fuck him and that it would call off the dogs. I still have the book in a safe at home. He arranged for the biker to steal it, he explained

In 1982, Argentina rashly gambled that a full-scale invasion of the Falklands Islands - ownership of which had been disputed with Great Britain for over a century - would put an end to years of political wrangling. However Britain's response was to immediately dispatch a task force to recover the islands by force if necessary. The 'conflict' which followed (a formal declaration of war was never given) lasted ten weeks from Argentine invasion to British liberation, the white heat of battle using 20th century technology contrasting with bitter hand-to-hand bayonet fighting in inhospitable conditions. This title features eyewitness accounts by the participants of both sides and islanders that leave us in no doubt as to the ferocity of the combat on land, sea and in the air. Its comparison photography in colour of all the battlefields, the crash sites of the aircraft shot down, the relics and the remains, together with portraits of those who lost their lives and the battlefield memorials, serve as a graphic testimony to their endeavours, 25 years after the battle. "A Roll of Honour" lists the casualties of both sides and, for the first time, the graves of all the British fallen - both on the islands and the United Kingdom - have been visited and photographed as a lasting record of all those who made the supreme sacrifice I what is most probably Britain's last colonial war.

I have read almost all of the books in English covering the Falklands (Islas Malvinas) War. While Nick van der Bijl's books might have a bit more detail on the land war than this one, it is by far the best all-around book available. It is actually two books. The captions for the pictures give the history of the conflict as described by the editor. I found tidbits of information here that are not covered anywhere else. The main text is an oral history from the people who experienced it. This includes not only the soldiers, sailors and airmen, but the Kelpers and even a few wives/widows.

The collection of pictures is truly amazing. It is an over-sized book (and heavy) and there are pictures on every page. The editor has contacted many of the veterans themselves and obtained the rights to use the photos they took during the war. Photos of many of the planes are included as well as their crash sites if they happened to hit the ground at a high rate of speed. There are pictures of many of the men who died as well as their gravestones. The "Then and Now" portion of the title reflects the editor's attempts to find the location where the original photographs were taken and show the current (2006) view. Some parts of the Falklands have changed significantly and others not at all. The maps are first rate also.

The book is expensive, no doubt about it. But if you have any interest in the Falklands War or military history this book is worth every penny (and a bargain on shipping, it must weigh ten pounds). I am glad I found this book towards the end of my studies as it would have made reading the other works on this war much less enjoyable.

Excellent, Excellent,Excellent.

This is one of those have to have books from cover to cover. This book is large book chock full of photo's and written with passion by Mr Ramsey who has turned out many other great books on the Channel Islands, Arnhem (which I own).

With out giving it away the author covers everything needed to understand the battles and history.

Price is high but well worth it.

Another point of view this part of history, many people from both country are and were marked for this event; and the search of what's happened there? Is a lighthouse in his life.
Great product, very good and incredible photografic book, with places and events where part of our history was developed, and also a great recognition to all those men and women who fougth there

Must be one of the best books about the Falklands war. With over 600 pages, this is one large and heavy book. I have a lot of books about the war. But this one gives a much better understanding of what happened there.
Agalen
This is an amazing book the amount of research done is staggering, each picture of then and now is accompanied by interviews of the veterans from the British and Argentinian armed forces giving a balanced view of what it was like for the men on both side who were actually there.
