Book Description

The fascinating true story of a man who spent his best years fighting in the Falklands and who was later diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

 

Thirty years after the Falklands War, "Secret Millionaire" Tony Banks is still haunted by his experiences in the South Atlantic. As a member of the crack Parachute Regiment his unit was the first to land on the Falklands and he fought in the bloody first and last battles of the war before liberating Port Stanley. In this memoir Tony vividly recalls the fighting in the Falklands. He relives the bombing raids in San Carlos bay, the Battle of Goose Green, the Argentinian attack on the Sir Galahad, and the Battle of Wireless Ridge. But he also tells of his own battles with Combat Stress and of how three decades on the war is still claiming victims. He tells the stories of British and Argentine veterans and travels to Argentina to return a war trophy—a trumpet he had taken from a prisoner—to its rightful owner. The return of  the trumpet brings closure to both men. And finally Tony returns to the Falklands to lay the ghosts that have haunted him to rest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Storming the Falklands March 17 2012

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Storming the Falkllands is a must read for people who are interested in how our young servicemen perform when the chips are down. The ineptitude of the system and how they are treated when things go wrong are exposed. I'm not a forces nut but I couldn't put this down. I read it while on holiday and my wife thought I wasn't talking to her. This is a great book. John Halley.

It was a little long winded with the build up to the falklands war. I did enjoy reading the stories when the Para's were on the boats heading to the Islands etc. I have read a number of book on the Falklands war and this book was okay.

If you like this book, then read "The green eyed boys" as well.
