No Dante, I have looked at that one and found pretty average just a repeat of everything previously written.

This is the one :

This one is about the ground war.

Desde el Frente (From the Front)


DESDE EL FRENTE, is a detailed account about the intervention of the BATALLN DE INFANTERA DE MARINA N5 (my translation would be 5th MARINE INFANTRY BATTALLION), in Malvinas (Flaklands) Islands, in 1982. Written by the commander of the battallion and the collaboration of his Encargado de Batalln (sorry, dont know how to translate this, but it is roughly the person in charge of the battallion). Spanish only as far as I know.

Have just read 'RAF Harrier Ground Attack, Falklands' by Jerry Pook. Very enjoyable if you can get past the constant criticism of the Navy.

UNDERSTEER - is when you hit the wall with the front wing.
OVERSTEER - is when you hit the wall with the back wing.
HORSEPOWER - is how fast you hit the wall.
TORQUE - is how far you can take the wall with you.

Thanks very much! Will look forward for this, we have plenty of data about Navy Sea Harrier but so far we're quite lacking on RAF Harrier information and data.

Which reminds me that couple of days ago I watched a program in TV called "Top 10 combat aircrafts" and at number 7 they placed the Harrier, then they proceed to a short interview with RAF Sqn Ldr Tony Harper who then described the Battle of Goose Green from his perspective in the Harrier's driver seat and how the RAF Harriers where a decisive factor for that battle.

It's a good read, and some interesting appendices covering low level navigation techniques and other aspects of flying fast jets of the era.

Put me in the beta team and my copy is in the post to you tomorrow morning! ;\) ;\)

I second the recommendation for Jerry Pook's book. It's an excellent and informative read on the difficulties of low level ground attack (on both sides), and has a shedload of incidental and technical detail whilst still being a relatively short and exciting read!

Reutlingen, Baden-Wrttemberg,...
Well ive read both Wards and Morgans book. And i like Wards more, i mean yeah the tone is pretty rough, but i sense somebody rather frustrated by his superiors. I mean Things like carrying out visual searches in which you shouldnt use the radar, if you are able to use it, sounds pretty damn stupid to me. I think there is a good deal of frustration in this book and its evident in its "arrogant" tone. You have to take into account that he was a one of the leading officers for the SHAR and knew what he was doing and did a good deal of tactical planning. Also even Morgan does not pull his punches about No. 800 Squadrons training status, and the tatctics used, for example in the first raid on Stanley. I think its not about how the shouldve been won, but about pointing out the flaws in the tactics, to avoid making them a second time. And quite a few people in leadership think themselves infallible, if you want to show those people their error, you sometimes need to shove them face first into it.

Well Morgans book has a definately more personal level and is from that point more interesting. Wards Book is from a squadron commanders level and its a more technical.

Still a very good selection of books here.
