About this book

Drawing on recently declassified government files, private papers and interviews, this book argues that through a combination of preventative diplomacy and robust defence planning, the Labour government of 1974-79 succeeded in maintaining peace, avoiding the fate of its Tory successors.

Reviews

"Aaron Donaghy merits congratulation for a well-researched and cogently argued analysis of the handling of the Falklands issue by the 1974 79 Labour government. Noting that the pre-1982 first volume of The Official History of the Falklands Campaign by Sir Lawrence Freedman is considerably shorter than its sequel, on the conflict itself, Donaghy challenges several areas of omission and contests other interpretations." - The Round Table, 2014
