The Imperial War Museum Book Of Modern Warfare – British And Commonwealth Forces At War 1945-2000


Surprisingly WWII as a whole still continues to dominate as a subject for new books on military history often at the expense of more recent campaigns. The post war period has witnessed a number of major campaigns such as the Korean War, The Falklands and the Gulf war to name but a few. This book covers 15 such events between 1945 and 2000 and each account is written by either a person who served in that conflict or a journalist who covered the event. The editor of this book Major General Thompson has written the chapter on the Falklands war in which he served as the Commanding Officer of 3 Commando Brigade
