Reviews

"A small gem of military and naval history reminiscent in many ways of Barbara Tuchman's The Guns of August. The authors have two stories to tell. The first is a brilliant narration of a short, violent clash in the freezing fogs and mountainous seas of the South Atlantic. The other is an informed analysis of the political decision-making that led to the conflict, raising those larger questions of war and peace which modern man approaches on bended knee." -- Washington Post Book World "Will probably endure as the standard history of the campaign." -- New York Times "Authoritative and very readable." -- Newsweek "Stirring, impressively detailed." -- Time
