The war fought between the United Kingdom and Argentina in 1982, for
the possession of the Falkland Islands was probably the last
'colonial' war that will ever be undertaken by the British. This book
shows how the key to British success was the speed with which the
British gained and then maintained air superiority over the islands
and the waters around then with their small force of Sea Harrier STOVL
warplanes, which operated from two aircraft carriers. Though subsonic,
the Sea Harrier and its Sidewinder AAM were a combination altogether
superior to Argentina's mix of supersonic and subsonic warplanes with
older weapons, and this advantage was emphasised by the significantly
greater tactical acuity of the British pilots. The Argentine pilots
fought with considerable piloting skill and enormous courage, and
scored a number of stunning successes against British warships, but
ultimately they could not prevent the British landing and the
following land campaign that resulted in complete Argentine defeat.
