5th Infantry Brigade in the Falklands War


The initial British landings in the Falklands were prinicipally made-up of the Royal Marines and the Parachute regiment, making up 3 Commando Brigade. They were later augmented by a second brigade, 5th Infantry Brigade, which principally consisted of 2nd Scots Guards Battalion, 1st Welsh Guards Battalion, and the Gurkhas. 5th Infantry Brigade played an important role in the war, taking part in a number of battles around Port Stanley. This book tells the story of 5th Infantry Brigade.

Product Description:
For many people it was 3 Commando Brigade, commanded by Major General Julian Thompson, and made up of Royal Marines and Paras that recaptured the Falklands. Yet 5th Infantry Brigade played a key and until now little acknowledged role in this extraordinary saga. Cobbled together in haste (having been stripped of its assets to bring 3 Commando Brigade up to strength), it comprised principally of two Guards battalion (2nd Scots and 1st Welsh) and the Gurkhas. Many felt it was inadequately trained when it sailed from Southampton on the QE2 and this view was given substance by early disasters such as the tragedy at Bluff Cove. Yet by the end, its contribution, of which Tumbledown is the best known, could not be denied. Why then was its commander (Brigadier Tony Wilson) so conspicuously ignored when the medals and decorations were handed out?

Product Description:
The Hundred Days that saw the British response to General Galtiere of Argentina’s invasion of the Falklands are for many British people the most remarkable of their lives. There will be massive revival of interest in this period in 2007 and this book covers all the main events of that momentous time. It describes the dark days of early April, the feverish response and forming of the Task Force, the anxieties and uncertainties, the naval and air battles that preceded the landings by 3 Commando Brigade and 5th Infantry Brigade.

The extraordinary battles such as Goose Green, Mount Tumbledown, Wireless Ridge etc are narrated fully but succinctly.

This is a very balanced overview of a never-to-be-repeated but triumphant chapter in British military history.
