A non fiction book by

 
 

The true story of one young naval officer's journey to war.

Spring, 1982. The government of Argentina seizes control of an obscure group of islands in the South Atlantic. And the Falklands War, the last great naval conflict of the 20th century, is about to begin.

On board HMS Illustrious a young naval officer, James Barrington, started keeping a diary - the story of a young man embarking on a terrifying adventure from which he couldn't know if he would return alive.

A fascinating glimpse into the psychology of going into battle for the first time, the anxiety, anticipation and excitement are captured in brilliant detail, as is the intense preparation that went into recapturing the islands.

Falklands: Voyage To War is a must-read for fans of real-life military stories such as Sniper One, 3 Para or Apache Down.
