The latest in the landmark Forgotten Voices series, giving a unique perspective on a pivotal but often overlooked conflict - the Falklands War.
Hugh McManners was a captain in 148 Commando Forward Observation Battery, serving with the Special Boat Squadron during the Falklands War. He joined the British Army in 1972 and in 1975 was sponsored by them to read Geography at Oxford University. He subsequently spent thirteen years with 3 Commando Brigade before leaving the army in 1989. He is now a television documentary producer, freelance writer and editor of Command magazine.
