Following Argentina's military operation to take possession of the Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas), British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's government launched a major naval operation to return them to British rule. Defending the Royal Navy task force were two small squadrons totalling 22 Sea Harriers (SHAR), who won the initial battle for air superiority against the Dassault Mirage interceptors and Dassault/IAI Dagger fighter-bombers of the Argentine Air Force (FAA). This forced the FAA to switch tactics, launching daring and courageous ultra-low level attacks against Royal Navy warships and auxiliaries, causing considerable damage during Operation Corporate, the large-scale amphibious operation to repossess the islands.

Publishing 35 years after the end of the conflict, this fully illustrated volume offers a balanced and objective examination of the SHAR and the Argentine Mirage and Dagger aircraft, highlighting the attributes of both and the skills and courage of the pilots flying them.
