Too Thin for a Shroud: 8 June 1982, Falklands: Britain's Most Lethal Day of Combat since World War II

21,000+ Reviews has the highest-rated customer service of any bookstore in the world


In 1982, eight young Guards officers in their twenties found themselves suddenly on the way to the Falklands 8000 miles away from Britain. Some four decades later, they realised that no one had written the history of this unique war in Britain's history from their side - including coming under Argentine fire on Sir Galahad on 8 June, the most dramatic day in Britain's military history since the second world war. Crispin Black tells their story and casts a startling new light on what happened to them, using the latest official documents. Even basic facts have remained hidden to this day.
