Too Thin for a Shroud

£20.00

The story of the Falklands War was written by observers, but not yet by someone who fought on the ground. Crispin Black, who was platoon commander and went on to become a Chatham House fellow and Cambridge MPhil, has written this first-hand history aided by other troops and commanding officers (now all in their eighties) to tell the real story before it is too late. Rather than an unalloyed triumph of the British military, the command centre in fact made many incomprehensible, avoidable mistakes with loss of unnecessary lives.
