THE FALKLANDS WAR MANUAL APRIL TO JUNE 1982
Insights into the planning, logistics and tactics that led to the successful retaking of the Falkland Islands
Autore: Chris McNab
Dettagliata trattazione dei sistemi di rifornimento e dei mezzi logistici delle Forze Armate britanniche durante la Guerra delle Falklands 1982.
When Britain sent a Naval Task Force to the South Atlantic in 1982 to reclaim the Falkland Islands from Argentinian invaders, it was a triumph of logistical organisation.
Chris McNab reveals how it was done. He examines planning and logistics, how the Task Force was raised and assembled, the adaptation and conversion of the liners QE2, Canberra and Uganda, logistics of the voyage south, how Ascension Island became an operations 'hub' for the Task Force, the use of air power, ships, landing craft, helicopters, weapons and equipment, and how the re-supply operation kept fuel, food and ammunition flowing across 7,878 miles of ocean.
