I was at primary school when this war kicked off, I remember we were very patriotic back then and every day there was a race to get to school to be chosen to move the little flags on the map that was pinned to the wall showing the British army's progress as well as cutting out newspaper articles that were from the preceding day's papers to pin up on the wall. I took a cut away diagram of HMS Conquerer that sank the Belgrano and my friend Craig had a similar diagram of a sea Harrier.

I shall get a copy of this book as it's evoking a fair few memories, thanks for telling us about.
