Final flight: The Royal Navy Lynx

Our Price
£18.75
RRP: £25.00
The official decommission date for the Royal Navy Lynx helicopter is set for 31 March 2017, and the last Lynx to deploy – Flight 208 – returned home to RNAS Yeovilton on March 10.

The Royal Navy Lynx – An Operational History tells the story of an incredibly capable naval aircraft, based primarily on the words of those who flew and maintained it. Beginning with the Lynx’s entry into service in 1976, it goes on to discuss its remarkable performance in the Falklands War. Here it was used in both its primary roles of anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare, as well as several others for which it had never been designed, such as Airborne Early Warning and anti-Exocet missile counter measures. Also included are accounts of operations conducted around the world.

The author describes the development of the aircraft from the Mark 2 to the current Mark 8 (SRU), bringing the narrative fully up to date. Although only a snapshot, the stories narrated here offer the reader a real understanding of the capabilities of an aircraft with a truly remarkable history of service.

Coming soon in paperback: Logistics in the Falklands War

Our Price
£11.00
RRP: £14.99
While many books have been written on the Falklands War, this is the first to focus on the vital aspect of logistics. The challenges were huge; the lack of preparation time; the urgency; the huge distances involved; the need to requisition ships from trade to name but four. Logistics in the Falklands War describes in detail the rush to re-organise and deploy forces, despatch a large task force, the innovative solutions needed to sustain the Task Force, the vital staging base at Ascension Island, the in-theatre resupply, the set-backs and finally the restoring of order after victory.

Had the logistics plan failed, victory would have been impossible and humiliation inevitable, with no food for the troops, no ammunition for the guns, no medical support for casualties etc. The lessons learnt have never been more important with increasing numbers of out-of-area operations required in remote trouble spots at short notice. The Falklands experience is crucial for the education of new generations of military planners and fascinating for military buffs and this book fills an important gap.

Also available in Kindle and ePub formats, only £6 each.

Revised anniversary edition: Pebble Island

Our Price
£11.99
RRP: £14.99
This is the story of the SAS raid on Pebble Island during the Falklands War.

In atrocious weather, 48 men of 22 SAS Regiment were landed by Sea King Helicopter on the Island. Their task was to destroy the 11 enemy aircraft located at the airstrip on the Island and neutralize the Argentinean force posted there to guard it.

The raid was successful and all the aircraft were destroyed but debate still goes on as to whether the raid was a political gesture to give the British public some action or whether it was to knock out the airbase that could have made life difficult for the landings at San Carlos Bay later in the War.

The book covers sections on: history of the engagement, training and planning involved, equipment used, weapons file, breakdown of forces engaged, consequences and controversies as well as personal accounts of those involved.

Falklands Gunner – A Day-by-Day Personal Account of the Royal Artillery in the Falklands War

The Royal Artillery played an absolutely vital, though often forgotten, part in the British armed forces’ successful operation to re-capture of the Falkland Islands in 1982. The actions of the artillery were recorded by one young officer in a journal which he kept before, during and after the conflict. Second Lieutenant Tom Martin was a Command Post Officer with 29 (Corunna) Field Battery RA which deployed to the South Atlantic in 1982 as part of the Task Force dispatched to retake the Falklands. With its six 105mm Light Guns making the journey on the MV Europic Ferry, the Battery sailed south on the MV Norland with 2 PARA, joining 3 Commando Brigade for the landings. The five gun batteries of the Royal Artillery, totalling thirty light field guns, fired a tremendous number of shells on the Argentine forces. For its part, 29 (Corunna) Field Battery fired the first Fire Mission of the conflict – and continued to do so until the Argentinian surrender – in the most testing environment and against the odds.

Whilst in the South Atlantic, Martin sought to detail and record the action on the Battery’s gun position. Supported by the recollections of some of those he served alongside, Martin’s notes and diary entries form the basis of this book; a vivid, blow-by-blow account which provides a comprehensive picture of the Royal Artillery and its pivotal role in the Falklands War.
