He was the only full-time British foreign correspondent to remain in Argentina after covering the war. He gives the first detailed account of the military planning of the invasion, exposing not only the hidden motives and nature of Argentina’s military regime, but also the pitifully inadequate reactions of both British diplomacy and intelligence.”
