  1. The Falklands Naval Campaign 1982 - War in the South Atlantic

    Dr Edward Hampshire

    In this illustrated study, renowned naval historian Dr Edward Hampshire draws upon the latest available sources to offer a comprehensive examination of the Falklands naval campaign. Blow-by-blow accounts of key engagements, such as the sinking of the General Belgrano, the loss of HMS Sheffield, and the landings at San Carlos Bay, are presented alongside lesser known but equally important naval operations that helped shape the outcome of the conflict.
  2. Argentine Fight for the Falklands

    Martin Middlebrook

    Martin Middlebrook is the only British historian to have been granted open access to the Argentines who planned and fought the Falklands War. It ranks with Liddell Hart's The Other Side of the Hill in analysing and understanding the military thinking and strategies of Britain's sometime enemy, and is essential reading for all who wish to understand the workings of military minds. The author has managed to avoid becoming involved in the issue of sovereignty and concentrates entirely upon the military story. He has produced a genuine 'first' with this balanced and unique work.
  3. The Falklands War - There and Back Again (P/B)

    Mike Norman & Michael Jones

    The Story of Naval Party 8901 Mike Norman and Michael Jones's dramatic account draws upon Norman's vivid recollections, the log book and action reports of the defence of Government House and Stanley, the testimony of Marines under Mike Norman's command and recently released government archives. It is a powerful and moving tribute to men who confronted the Argentinian invaders and then fought to regain the Falklands.
  4. Harrier 809

    Rowland White

    Britain's Legendary Jump Jet and the Untold Story of the Falklands War April 1982. Argentina invades the Falkland Islands. In response, Britain despatches a naval Task Force. Eight thousand miles from home, its fate hinges on just twenty Sea Harriers against the two hundred-strong might of the Argentine Air Force. The odds against them are overwhelming. The MoD's own estimates suggest that half the Harriers will be lost within a week. Against this background, 809 Naval Air Squadron is reformed, trained and sent south to fight. Not since WWII had so much been expected of such a small band of pilots. Combining groundbreaking research with the pace of a thriller, Rowland White reveals the full story of the fleet's knife-edge fight for survival for the first time, and shows how the little jump jet went from airshow novelty to sealing its reputation as an icon of British aviation, alongside the Spitfire and the Hurricane.

    John Ferris

    The Authorised History of GCHQ, Britain's Secret Cyber-Intelligence Agency You know about MI5. You know about MI6.

  6. 3 Commando Brigade in the Falklands - No Picnic

    Julian Thompson

    Re-release Major General Julian Thompson first wrote No Picnic when the momentous events of April - June 1982 were fresh in his mind. The author, now a celebrated military historian, has revised his early book and added for this 25 Anniversary edition more of his own personal thoughts and impressions. It is all too easy to overlook just how perilous and risky a venture this expedition to the depths of the Southern Hemisphere was. Victory and defeat hung in the balance. Even those who feel they know about this most remarkable of wars will learn more from reading this classic account (re-release).

    Coming Soon

    SAS - Sea King Down - PRE ORDER

    Mark Aston & Stuart Tootal

    Publication of this title has been delayed due to COVID – we will advise new expected dates in due course – you can pre-order but there could be a long wait well into 2021 This is the remarkable story of Splash's war, but it reads like a thriller. An unputdownable, edge-of-the-seat insight into still classified Special Forces operations during the Falklands War, SAS: Sea King Down will take its place alongside classics like Bravo Two Zero as military adventure writing of the highest order.
  9. A Carrier at Risk

    Mariano Sciaroni

    Argentinean Aircraft Carrier and Anti-Submarine Operations Against Royal Navy's Attack Submarines During the Falklands/Malvinas War, 1982 Based on years of research, including extensive investigation into naval operations of both sides of the conflict, 'A Carrier at Risk' is a vibrant and lucid account of a week-long cat-and-mouse game between anti-submarine warfare specialists on board ARA 25 de Mayo, and multiple nuclear attack submarines of the Royal Navy: an entirely unknown, yet crucial aspect of the South Atlantic War. Illustrated by over 100 photographs, maps, and colour profiles, this volume closes one of the major gaps - though also a crucially important affair - in the coverage of this conflict.

    Edward Hampshire

    From Suez to the Falklands and the present day This title is an essential guide to British Amphibious Assault Ships across the decades, from the mighty Fearless to the modern Albion.
