Synopsis

This is a first person account of what it was like to;live in one of the most peaceful places on earth, the Falkland Islands (Malvinas) when suddenly thirty years ago it became a scene of bloody conflict between the armed forces of Argentina and Britain.. This book chronicles the human response to being at home on the wrong side of a war in a series of anecdotes which each deal with a different question: some difficult to answer, some humorous and some just plain mystifying. The author, John Fowler, was at the time Superintendant of Education for the Falkland Islands Government and it was in his house that the only civilian fatalities of the war occured.
