HASH(0xa3716444) étoiles sur 5 A solid three stars: could have been four but for the personal ramblings of a clearly disaffected person. 7 février 2015

This would be a four star book but for the rant at the beginning of the book in which the author slams the MoD over and over. He might have some valid points, but it just comes across as bitter and immature, when the book itself is witty and sometimes enthralling. I'd recommend skipping the pre amble and go to the first chapter. A decent book with some good humour, interspersed - as with any war - with a good deal of tragedy. It does make you wonder reading this book that if the Argentine army had been half as courageous and well trained as their Air Force what the outcome might have been.
I knew little about the role of a military soldiers' role as a forward observation operative, but this portrays it well for the lay person.
Worth a read once you get past the whinging.
One thing the author does do well is convey the importance of supporting soldiers who have been through a traumatic time and the need for proper communications, it's just a shame this is a bit lost at the beginning.

has to be the definitive work on soldiering in the falklands war, by a rather unusual soldier.

Par HMS Warspite - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
"Falklands Commando" is Captain Hugh McManners' well-written memoire of his service as a commando forward observer with the British Army in the short, fiercely contested 1982 war with Argentina over the remote Falkland Islands.

The sudden Argentine invasion of the Falklands took Britain by surprise. McManners captures the controlled chaos of the departure of an expeditionary force to the South Atlantic to retake the islands. At sea, his small party had limited opportunities to train and prepare aboard over-crowded ships. Once off the Falklands, horrendous weather, difficult terrain, and the Argentine military itself created additional challenges to getting ashore and coming to grips with the enemy.

With more than a little understated humor and much fascinating personal detail, McManners describes the operations ashore, as his team leap-frogged across the islands, calling in naval gunfire in support of special operations forces. His narrative columinates with the British Army in command of the heights above Port Stanley and the Argentine military hopelessly trapped.

The Falkslands War is a long way back in the rear view mirror, but "Falklands Commando" has plenty to offer in the way of lessons learned for war on an austere budget in a remote location. It is highly recommended to students of expeditionary warfare.

Hugh McManners is a professional soldier, a commando, forward observation and artillery expert. Cold, wet and often bored, yet he and his comrades rained naval gun fire onto Argentine positions with trained and remarkable accuracy. The shells came from no where to the Argentinians, plotted exactly by McManners and his crew hidden in the peat bogs and rock outcroppings of nearby ridges. These were brave guys doing an important, but unsung mission. Unfortunately, way too many details without much action. All in all, job well done for the Brits.

The F@#$-an-Islands!

In this Royal Artillery captain's memoir of the Falkland Islands campaign, Hugh McManners book "Falklands Commando" describes his daily routines and provides a personal view of a soldier aboard ships and in battle. Because of his assignment with the 148 Commando Forward Observation Battery of the Royal Artillery, whose main purpose was to control naval gunfire, he personally witnessed many significant actions in this campaign.
