More About March to the South Atlantic by Nick Vaux; Max Hastings
 
 
 
Overview
From the moment the author gave his famous order To the South Atlantic Quick March to the final return home he describes what going to war with 42 Commando was like. Here are the authentic details of danger, frustration, fatigue, courage and endurance - just some of the emotions experienced during those fateful weeks and months of 1982. We learn too of the Argentine enemy whose leaders put them in such danger only to abandon them. It was the men of Four-Two that took part in the re-capture of South Georgia and, later, South Thule. They also had to hold Challenger Ridge in atrocious conditions and went on to seize Mount Harriet in a daring night assault. All this is superbly described in this delightful book along with the fascinating array of characters, be the military, civilian, journalist etc all thrown together to achieve a common cause namely the restitution of British rule over a remote corner of the globe."
