In a series of thrilling recreations of eight of the most signicant military encounters of the last three decades, (the author) presents a fascinating insight into the nature of modern warfare and the influence it has on contemporary events. The conflicts include Goose Green in the Falklands, the invasion of Grenada, Operation Desert Storm - the first modern Iraq War, operations in Mogadishu as immortalized in the book and film 'Blackhawk Down', the Siege of Gorazde and Operation Barras in Sierra Leone, as well as more recent events at Fallujah, Iraq and in Helmand Province, Afghanistan." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - clean and bright.
