Author: Harry Benson
Publisher: Preface Digital


We all know about the Falkland Islands War in 1982. It's all about SAS deeds and Nuclear Submarine warfare coupled with the Marines marching (yompin) over cold and hostile terrain.
This story however covers the silent War that was fought by members of both the RAF and Army Helicopter units. This is a concise record of both who the pilots were, and what their machines were asked to undertake in both support and offensive roles during the Falklands War.
This is a fascinating tale of heroes in action, understated and almost forgotten. This book is a valuable testament to real unsung and unmentioned, but still major contributors to the ultimate Victory that was the Falklands Campaign.

Keep reading, Ivor Kindle.
