The Haynes Falklands War Operations Manual looks at the planning and logistics that made the whole Falklands War operation possible.

This manual considers 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.

Gives the Acronyms a real meaning

I read Kindle books ofteen on the Falklands War few of them give an overwiew of the war many concentrating on the air war or the aircraft type "they attacked Darwin" to find Darwin this book is invaluable and helps so much with the visualisation as to what is going on!

Well researched and informative

Excellent book for those interested in the nitty gritty details of operations on and around the Falklands 1982. Separate chapters on air, land and naval operations with impressive detail and sources. Enjoyable read and great service and delivery from the Tank Museum
