Title: Battle for the Falklands: Naval Forces Book 2
Description: London, Osprey Publishing. 1982, First Edition. (ISBN: 0850454921) Paperback, 4to - over 9" - 12" tall. In the early hours of the chilly late-autumn morning, April 2 1982, substantial forces of Argentine Marines, with heavy naval and air support, had invaded the Falkland islands, quickly and almost bloodlessly overwhelming a token garrison of Royal Marines. The following day Argentine forces also invaded the Falklands dependency of South Georgia, forcing the garrison of just 22 Royal Marines to surrender, though not before they had inflicted disproportionately heavy losses on their attackers. The authors examine the naval forces of both sides who fought in the battle for the Falklands. From the library of Naval Historian and author James W. Goss. Very Good.
