Land That Lost Its Heroes
Financial Times journalist Jimmy Burns was posted to Argentina three months before the invasion of the Falkland Islands, remaining there throughout the war and the country's subsequent transition to democracy. This updated and revised edition of his celebrated history analyses the conflict, largely from the Argentinian perspective, exposing the inadequacies of British diplomacy and intelligence, exploring the motives and nature of the military junta and charting the regime's collapse in the aftermath of the war.
