BeschreibungIt was to be one of the most ambitious operations since 617 Squadron bounced their revolutionary bombs into the dams of the Ruhr Valley in 1943... When Argentine forces invaded the Falklands in the early hours of 2 April 1982, Britain's military chiefs were faced with a real-life Mission Impossible.
PortraitRowland White was eleven years old when Argentina invaded the Falkland Islands and reading the papers everyday for news quickly became his daily routine. He has been fascinated by the conflict ever since, and in particular with the Vulcan raid on Stanley airfield. He is the author of two other books, Phoenix Squadron and Storm Front. He works in publishing in London.
Pressestimmen"Big heavy bombers. Proper old-fashioned heroism. And triumph of ingenuity over limited funding. So far as I'm concerned, it has the lot and to cap it all it reads like fiction when it's actually fact. I more than enjoyed it, it could have been written specially for me" -- Jeremy Clarkson "One helluva great flying story. The gripping narrative reads like a suspense thriller, yet every word is true" -- Stephen Coonts "Exciting and breathtakingly pacy... This is exactly how modern history should be written" -- Andy McNab "A masterwork of narrative history. Brilliantly described, the story of an impossible British mission is a compelling one; it's telling long overdue" -- Clive Cussler "Gripping, endlessly fascinating detail. I read the book in one sitting: it is an utterly compelling war story, brilliantly written" -- Simon Winchester
