{detailed description}Since the Falklands campaign ended in June 1982 many and varied accounts have been published on the performance of the British naval and military equipment deployed in the South Atlantic.
Regardless of comments—often highly critical — made about the performance and combat-worthiness of other equipment used there has been universal agreement that the Royal Navy's Sea Harriers and the Royal Air Forces's Harrier GR3s emerged from this, their baptism of fire, with a reputation that is now legendary. Dauntingly outnumbered, these small subsonic jets held the Falklands airspace against the might of the Argentine Air Force's fast subsonic and supersonic aircraft, and they emerged victorious.
This book recounts the personal experience of just a few of the RN and RAF personnel who took the Harrier to war for the first time. It uses their words to tell of their own thoughts and actions, their feelings about the conflict and how V/STOL was vindicated during its greatest test.
Illustrating the personal accounts are over 100 photographs, many of which have not been seen publicly before.
