Los libros de la Guerra de las Malvinas
This book adopts an innovative new approach to examine the role of maritime power and the utility of navies. It uses a number of case studies based upon key Royal Navy operations in the twentieth century to draw out enduring principles about maritime power and to examine the strengths and limitations of maritime forces as instruments of national policy.
Individual chapters focus on campaigns and operations from both World Wars and a series of post-1945 crises and conflicts from the Palestine Patrol in the 1940s to Royal Navy operations in support of British policy in the 1990s. Each case study demonstrates critical features of maritime power including: operations during the transition to war; fleet operations in narrow seas; logistics; submarine operations; the impact of air power on maritime operations; blockade; maritime power projection; amphibious warfare; jurisdictional disputes and the law of the sea; and, peace support operations.
The contributors to this book all have considerable experience lecturing on these issues at the United Kingdom Joint Services Command and Staff College, where maritime campaign analysis is used to teach the principles of maritime power to officers of the Royal Navy. The book combines an authoritative examination of critical Royal Navy operations during the twentieth century with a sophisticated analysis of the nature of maritime power. As such it is of both historical interest and contemporary relevance and will prove equally valuable to academic historians, military professional s and the general reader.
In the early hours of the chilly late-autumn morning, April 2 1982, substantial forces of Argentine Marines, with heavy naval and air support, had invaded the Falkland islands, quickly and almost bloodlessly overwhelming a token garrison of Royal Marines. The following day Argentine forces also invaded the Falklands dependency of South Georgia, forcing the garrison of just 22 Royal Marines to surrender – though not before they had inflicted disproportionately heavy losses on their attackers. In this companion to Men-at-Arms 133 & 135 Adrian English and Anthony Watts examine the naval forces of both sides who fought in the battle for the Falklands.
From the Publisher
Packed with specially commissioned artwork, maps and diagrams, the Men-at-Arms series is an unrivalled illustrated reference on the history, organization, uniforms and equipment of the world's military forces, past and present.
The small but fascinating war fought between the
United Kingdom and Argentina in 1982 for possession of the Falkland Islands
was probably the last 'colonial' war that will ever be undertaken by the
British. Starting with an Argentine invasion and ending in the total
reassertion of British sovereignty over the islands and their dependencies,
the Falklands war was an object lesson in the superiority of small but well
equipped and highly motivated professional forces over potentially
larger but less well equipped and indifferently trained forces relying for
their main strength on conscripts. The key to British success was the
speed with which the British gained and then maintained air
superiority over the islands and the waters around them with their small
force of Sea Harrier STOVL warplanes, which operated from two aircraft
carriers. Though subsonic, the Sea Harrier and its Sidewinder AAM were
a combination altogether superior to Argentina's mix of supersonic and
subsonic warplanes with older weapons, and this advantage was
emphasized by the significantly greater tactical acuity of the British
pilots. The Argentine pilots fought with considerable piloting skill
and enormous courage, and against British warships, but ultimately
they could not prevent the British landing and the following land campaign
that resulted in complete Argentine defeat.

The 1982 Falklands War witnessed the largest deployment of British Army Special Forces since WWII--the Special Air Service, the Special Boat Squadron, and the Royal Marines Mountain and Arctic Warfare Cadre conducted several spectacular raids during the war. One of the most successful, the attack by the D Squadron SAS against an Argentinean airfield on Pebble Island, proved the SAS motto--Who Dares Wins. But the war cost heavily on both sides--255 British and over 1,000 Argentineans died.
An A-4 Skyhawk Story from the
While I was stationed at NAS Lemoore, in Lemoore California, my friend, Dan Dove, and I took a break and walked around to the side of the hanger to watch flight ops at night. It was almost instantly that we saw an A-4 Skyhawk coming in with its wheels up and at a higher approach angle than we expected. The plane hit the ground and there was a huge flash of light. We didn't actually see the plane hit because it hit the ground behind the hanger of VA-127 which was across from our hanger at VA-125. However, we did see the flash coming from behind the hanger. I can't actually remember what we did after this, but we must have ran across the street because I remember seeing the airplane on the ground and the pilot was opening the canopy.
These A-4 Skyhawks were real good at doing belly landings because of the low wing and the wing tanks that you can see in the picture above. The tanks were ground down, in half, and the flash must have come from the residual fuel in them. The next day we watched the plane being hauled past our hanger with a cherry picker truck. It looked like that there was zero damage to the plane and it also looked like it was just a toy hanging from that huge crane.
