An excellent book I grant you but not a new account I assume. My copy of this book by Mark Adkin was first released in 1992.

In my opinion the best and most challenging analysis of Goose Green has to be 'Not Mentioned in Despatches' by Spencer Fitz-Gibbon (first edition 1995, ISBN 0718829336).

Fewer unicorns in your book.

I didn’t think my post was emotive or worded in such a way it would offend you. Perhaps somehow it did though.

I merely offered up the fact that this excellent book is not new and highlighted another source that may be of interest to others; even if not you.

No letter C in Mafeking by the way which, yes, has been relieved to answer your question and that also took a lot longer than the relief of Goose Green.

Regards. SB.
