    "This book is nearly perfect. It's exciting, detailed, and very thorough. Just one note for an American reader: this is really told through the eyes of Great Britain. That doesn't make it bad (it's excellent), just know that your are getting that perspective. Otherwise (or maybe even because) it's just top notch. "

    "For a while now I have been interested in the Falklands War but have not really had the chance to study it yet. My husband gave me the book One Hundred Days: The Memoirs of the Falklands Battle Group Commander one day after hearing me talk about it. This book had a lot of information in it and was written in an easy to understand manner. "

    "Though it's a heavily written about topic, Operation Corporate stands apart in the busy field about the Falklands War by going into exquisite details not found elsewhere. With my British heritage, I was especially enamored about the historical accuracy presented."

    "Story of a war pilot's memoir. Interesting historically speaking. They insert a bit of romance but that really doesn't go with this particular story well. Read it for the military history."

    "This talks about a specific recollection of aircraft during the war. This isnt really the best book because if it needed a book on the war it would be a much more vague subject such as where the war took place, when it started, how it started, rather talking about pilots or a certain specific part of that war."

    "I like the straight forwardness of this book. It is no nonsense and just presents the facts. It is rare to find a book like this that does not mean it's a dull read, so I give this five stars. The maps are incredible too!"
