Book Review – Logistics in the Falklands War



This is an opportune publication at a time when politicians are responding to increasing conflict threats by savagely cutting defence spending. The brilliant victory in the Falklands in liberating the islanders from Argentine bandits cloaks the disasters in Government policy that encouraged the Argentines to think they would get away with aggression that increased risks for the Falklands Task Force. This book is the first to look in depth at the logistics, the risks and how the British Forces overcame obstacles to defeat a much larger enemy that also enjoyed the advantages that a defender has against an amphibious landing. This book should be compulsory reading for the morons in Parliament who deprive the British Forces of the equipment they need to do their jobs. It will certainly be well-received by enthusiasts and professionals. Highly recommended.
