Patrick Bishop, John Witherow. Boldly planned, bravely executed and brilliantly accomplished’ was Margaret Thatcher’s assessment of the Falklands campaign. The authors, then rookie reporters, lived alongside the fighting men, experiencing the daily realities of a British task force that was hugely outnumbered on a barren island 8,000 miles from home.

Notwithstanding its confusing title ('The Winter War' is usually applied to the 1939-40 Russo-Finnish War), this is one of the better books rushed out in 1982 in the wake of the Falklands War. Journalists Patrick Bishop (The Observer) and John Witherow (The Times) spent time 'embedded' with various units on the voyage south and during the land campaign, and pooled resources for this co-authored book.

The Winter War. Patrick Bishop. Mud-stained comic books and letters from home skipped about in the wind. We passed an artillery position still smoking from the battering it had received from the British guns

The Winter War. We passed an artillery position still smoking from the battering it had received from the British guns. The ground around it was churned up like a newly ploughed field.

When the war was over General Moore, inevitably quoting Wellington, said it had been ‘a close run thing’. When the fleet set sail it seemed impossible the Argentinians could win. After it was over it was difficult to see how they had lost. Their weapons were just as good as those of the British and better in some cases. They had two months to prepare their defences and at the start of the war they outnumbered their attackers by three to one, a direct inversion of the odds that conventional military wisdom dictates as a prerequisite for success.
