One war, many perspectives, 35 years ago.

Writing a story set in 1982 during the Falklands War, so I’ve been doing a lot of research over the last few weeks.
This is one of the best documentaries I’ve found, highlighting combatants on both sides and civilians caught in the middle. It doesn’t focus on combat footage, but on personal accounts from sailors, marines, pilots, soldiers, and civilians.

All war sucks for the grunts on the ground and the crews behind the consoles, even the Short & Splendid Little Wars fought for short-term political goals. Maybe especially those.

  1. I love you your books Marco. The Falklands conflict is an incredible study in military history and I’ve watched just about every video(including this one) that has been made about it. I’d recommend the book ‘A Damn Close-Run Thing: A Brief History of the Falklands War’ by Russel Philips.
