Forgotten voices of the Falklands by Hugh McManners( Book )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In March 1982, Argentina surprised the world by invading the Falkland Islands in the Atlantic Ocean. The tiny islands had long been the subject of a fierce territorial dispute between Argentina and the UK, and the occupation quickly escalated into a terrifying full-blown conflict between the two countries. Often referred to as a forgotten war, the Falklands conflict was, in actual fact, the first war of the modern age, using satellite surveillance, night observation devices, and all the very latest weaponry military technology had to offer. It was also the first real media war - the public's perception of this far-off conflict mediated by what they saw on their television screens and read in their newspapers. Objective analysis on both sides took a back seat to the politics of expediency and crude appeals to nationalism. Drawing upon the vast resources of the Imperial War Museum's Sound Archive, and containing previously unpublished material, "Forgotten Voices of the Falklands War" presents the first complete oral history of the Falklands War. From the initial invasion of the islands to the British landings to the Argentinean surrender and its aftermath, the book is a unique and essential chronicle of the conflict from all sides and perspectives, told in the participants' own voices. Hugh McManners, who himself fought in the Falklands War, has created the definitive oral history book on the subject

Gulf War One : British voices from the front line by Hugh McManners( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite losing an eight-year war with Iran in 1988, Iraq remained the region's dominant military power. With missiles and nuclear, biological and chemical weapons, Saddam's war-experienced army comprised 260,000 troops and 2,000 tanks. But his 1990 invasion of Kuwait ended with the most efficient war victory in US history. It was the first war for the US since Vietnam, with the UK its largest non-Arab ally, and the first war fought over a resource: oil. A new 'high tech' war, it had a total of only 146 US casualties - yet health problems have since dogged thousands of coalition soldiers, and uncounted thousands of Iraqi soldiers were killed. And following the protracted suffering of the Iraq invasion and nation-building operation over a decade later, many feel it was all for nothing a Hugh McManners' original interviews for Gulf War One - with combatants from both sides; Kuwait, Iraqi and Saudi citizens; military planners and politicians; human shield hostages and Gulf War Syndrome sufferers u allow those both serving and caught up in the war to tell its history in their own words
