Haynes Manual Falklands War

The Falklands War of 1982 was a defining event in modern British history, socially, culturally and militarily. When Britain sent a naval Task Force to the South Atlantic, to reclaim the Falkland Islands from Argentinian invaders, it was a triumph of logistical organisation.

Chris McNab examines how the naval Task Force was raised and assembled in rapid time, the adaptation and conversion of the liners QE2, Canberra and Uganda for war service in the South Atlantic, the logistics of the long voyage south, how Ascension Island became a 24/7 staging post and operations 'hub' for the Task Force, the use of air power (in particular the RAF Harrier and RN Sea Harrier), the RAF’s air-to-air refuelling tanker aircraft that made much of the air component of the operation feasible, the epic Black Buck Vulcan bomber raid on Stanley; ships, landing craft, helicopters, weapons and equipment, and how the re-supply operation kept the fuel, food and ammunition flowing across 7,878 miles of ocean.

Chris McNab is an author and editor specialising in military history and military technology. He has published more than 100 books, including the Haynes Kubelwagen/Schwimmwagen Manual, Dreadnought Battleship, and the RAF Chinook Manual. He lives in South Wales.
