It is a very approachable book, easy to read, well written and
edited. * Naval Review *
...an engrossing read. A scene-setting section provides the reader with an understanding of the political situation in the early 1980s, along with how the A-4B/C/P Skyhawk was brought into service, initially from land bases, but also on the country's only aircraft carrier, ARA Veinticinco de Mayo. * Airfix Model World *
A superb publication for anyone wanting to know more about the air battles for the Falklands. * Flypast Magazine *
